Could the previous owner bought my car as a premium, but then has the dealer install the three aforementioned?

Once I get off work I will pull them and check for sure. I mean, they (lowbeams) are very white in comparison to other headlights (lowbeams) from the premium models I have googled. Hmmmmmm.....I will report back shortly.
The leveling motor cannot be used on the OEM halogen housing. If you have the leveling motor and it works then you definitely have HID's. Its possible the previous owner did it himself (sounds like a pretty good job of it) or he paid the dealer a ton to do it. Either way you have a REALLY nice upgrade that the dealer probably was not aware of.

These may not be exact, but this is typically what an HID bulb will look like.
And a halogen bulb will look similar to this.
