I believe that you are ok and do not need to do anything. It is perhaps confusing but there appears to be a difference between k8 and k9 in the licensing (k8 gets DES but not 3DES/AES while k9 gets 3DES/AES) and you have the k9 license (since 3DES/AES is enabled). However in the software there is only the k8 image file. I checked in the software download pages on the Cisco web site and there are no k9 images listed, only k8 images.

So I believe that your company received what it purchased and there is no need to do anything special.
