I think you should try anyway.

I've returned OEM drives to Seagate and Western Digital. They balked
a little at first, but I explained that the seller was either
uncooperative or no longer existed, so I had no other way of getting
warranty service.

If you really think about it, what is the bloody difference anyway?

All the seller can do is exactly what the end user can do: get and RMA
and send the drive back.
