Default Serial Numbers Recorded on 4473?

I've done business with an FFL for the past year and a half, and every time they called the FBI for the background check they always did it from the backroom and out of my sight. This is important to note, because last week I went to a different FFL and bought a gun on spur of the moment. This time I watch the dealer call in my BG check, and when it clears the clerk marks the 4473 form with the serial # of my purchase on a line below my signature and date. I politely ask when the ATF mandated that be accomplished, and he said that's how its always been done since he worked there.

Is that fact, or is it an FFL-dependent policy? For all I know my "main" dealer could have done so the entire time and I never knew the wiser, so hence I ask.

The 1911 may have been in wars for 100 years, but Masetro Bartolomeo Beretta was arming the world 400 years before John Browning was ever a wet dream.
