Question About Recent Amazon Prime BGEE Version

I recently obtained a copy of BG:EE via Amazon Prime. I am a little confused about what version I'm getting.

It has the BGEE starting interface (and says v. 2.6.6, for what it's worth). However, it also has the Legacy of Bhaal difficulty level, and the Shaman class -- making me thing it also has the SoD DLC, even though I see no way to access that directly in-game. Black Pits is there and is accessible, for what it's worth..

Am I missing anything? I've found no other way to check what DLCs are installed.

    LoB and Shaman are not from SoD.

    If you have SoD you will see it in the starting menu.

    They're listed as SoD features on https://www.siegeofdragonspear.com/, and not listed on https://baldursgate.beamdog.com/ as EE features. Guess this is incorrect? Were they in the core EE from the start, or did they get added with a patch?

    I know, but I did run into some bug reports that suggest the interface might not change properly. Either way, I tested with an imported character with 161k xp, and they don't gain, so no SoD...

    I'm pretty sure they were added in the 2.5 patch.

    SoD doesn't increase XP cap in BGEE game portion. SoD XP cap only applies when you are in the SoD game portion.
    Here is how your starting menu looks like with SoD :

    The Siege of Dragonspear site hasn't been updated in years. That info (about SoD features) was relevant for the SoD release. You got BG:EE, so it has everything BG:EE offers.
