I suggest adding an Additional Notes to part 53788 (Mindstorms NXT-Complete Brick).
I have a reply from LEGO support with this information (information in Russian).
My English is bad, you can change the text to the correct one.
"LEGO has released 2 versions of the NXT - Complete Brick. They differed in the
design of the button block. The first version of NXT Brick was released from
2006 to August 2009. The second version of NXT Brick was released from September
2009 to 2014. The first version of NXT Brick almost always does not work the
screen. The release date of NXT Brick is written on the back. If the release
date is less than or equal to 132I9, then this is the first version. If the release
date is greater than 132I9, then this is the second version of the block."
