The seller is in Hong Kong, so I suspect they probably had a small release of the Super Game Boy 2 in Hong Kong for the PAL systems they had there.

Lingjr often has unusual items on their eBay store.

I suspect it's modified. The rear sticker is obviously too small. As if a normal European one, instead of the larger size used by original Super Game Boy.

I'd guess it's a HK-only release from Mani (Nintendo's official HK distributor). They released a ton of obscure stuff that never saw the light of day elsewhere, like official GB multicarts and a PAL Famicom.

Of the multicarts, the Taito one did get released in Japan.
I thought the HK Famicom was also NTSC, just because there was a huge import demand compared to the PAL NES.

The official thing was actually some sort of hybrid.
I think the (completely failed) NES here was the same as the Europe version though. Before Nintendo released the official HK Famicom, people here just played with imported Japanese units. Some used units poorly modded to PAL (which was reported to fail and even damage the TVs after some time of use). "Gamers" just used NTSC units modded to have AV outputs, and used a TV that supported multi-system(expensive) or a NTSC monitor(cheaper, and sort of common since NTSC Apple II clones were very popular here).
