Unless SC objects I don't see how it matters.

Well, as I have posted, I discovered the kit's hiding place by myself.
And if I had not, my recourse would have been the fact this is a Nissan Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle.
They have a 167 point Checklist; the relevant ones to me would be:
#125 Jack/Tools (Condition)
#156 Spare Tire (Condition/Tread/Pressure) Spare __ PSI
Clearly they were required to inspect those items. Whether they did or not is now moot.
Thankfully.
Ah. The more you know... :) I've never had a used car with that kind of guarantee. Glad you got it sorted. Check the condition of the sealant.

How would I do that ?

You may be able to tell by shaking the can. If the stuff is still liquid it's likely ok if not 10 years old. If the can feels like it contains solid rubber, OTOH...

Liquid good, solid bad.

I strongly recommend using the compressor with a tubeless tire repair kit and not to use the sealer. That being said, check that the plastic bottle seems to be firm when trying to squeeze it (under pressure) as well as having the sealer being liquid. The bottle is under pressure to force the sealer into the hose of the compressor and ultimately into the tire so the sealer will not perform its function if the bottle loses pressure.
