His understanding is completely wrong. While you could have
registered your Mini-14 as an Assault Weapon during the registration period, if it is indeed not an assault weapon there would be no need to register it unless you wanted to add something to it that would otherwise make it an assault weapon (flash-hider, pistol grip, etc...). There is NOTHING in the law that backs up the mis-information he is feeding you.
