To answer the break-in oil question you'd have to have the oil analyzed. A $20 oil analysis will reveal if the oil has an unusual amount of anti-wear additive that would qualify it as "break-in" oil.

Honda says that the factory fill oil in many of their cars is break-in oil and to leave it in for xxxx miles. I had my alleged break-in factory-fill oil analyzed in my Acura and it had >1000ppm moly. Honda has since reduced the amount of moly in their factory-fill oil. I think Havoline has as much moly now.
