I do as well.
I don't recall what its display showed when mounted on my T6s. (maybe it showed 480) EXIF data does display 300mm everywhere else. DPP and PLE. I don't use Lr.

I don't show the 35mm eq focal length display very often, I don't see it as useful. The default is the distance/DOF marker display, which is what you usually see.
I wish they would put on a Hyperfocal distance display.

Long story short, all we established is that the lens is faulty and should be returned. I would've hoped Canon Community would be able to shed some light with regards to potential cause of this issue / repair options. This is purely my curiosity at this stage.
Anyway, thanks again for your contribution and I wish you all the best
If you expected someone to tell you "this is how you fix it", then that is an unrealistic expectation.
