I find that weird (though I do believe it), because the smoked taste is so immediately identifiable. You'd certainly be able to tell from the first taste, I would think. Anyhow, the oscypek I've bought here was definitely smoked. I can check with my parents tomorrow (my dad is from Zakopane, and my mother worked there for years), and they tend to know the delis pretty well on at least this side of town, so I'll see if they have any recommendations.
