I agree. This sounds like a case where the GVWR is governed by the registration in the state to avoid commercial plate requirements (like Pennsylvania). In fact, I learned after buying my truck that I had the option of order it with a lower GVWR placard.
When I renewed my entirely residential/non-commercial registration for the year, I was informed that I'm supposed to be doing/having done some kind of yearly preventative maintenance inspection:

This is a reminder to myself- I really need to call MDOT and find out if it applies to non-commercial folks such as myself.
