Regardless of whether it was, I personally wouldn't let anyone else do it. They have to swap the airbag over, and that's something I wouldn't entrust to many people.

It probably won't be covered by warranty unless dealer installed.

Its really simple, just make sure the electrics are disconnected while you do it

If when you reconnect the battery the airbag light comes on, then you are in trouble , but it wont

so you'll be ok
