The DOHC phase 1 gaskets you get at the dealer are MLS (but thicker than the SOHC and turbo).
Your dealer must be selling outdated stock. I haven't seen anything but MLS gaskets at my dealership for a few years now. Pretty sure even the SOHC Ej25 gasket was changed to MLS on one of the several updates over the years.
