It's not BS, they are made that way.  It is covered in your owner's manual.  

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

Condensation in the Exterior Front Lamps and Rear Lamps Exterior front lamps and rear lamps have vents to accommodate normal changes in air pressure. Condensation can be a natural by-product of this design. When moist air enters the lamp assembly through the vents, there is a possibility that condensation can occur when the temperature is cold. When normal condensation occurs, a fine mist can form on the interior of the lens. The fine mist eventually clears and exits through the vents during normal operation. Clearing time may take as long as 48 hours under dry weather conditions.

 

Examples of acceptable condensation are: • The presence of a fine mist (no streaks, drip marks or large droplets). • A fine mist covers less than 50% of the lens.

 

Examples of unacceptable condensation are: • A water puddle inside the lamp. • Streaks, drip marks or large droplets present on the interior of the lens. 

If you see any unacceptable condensation, have your vehicle checked by an authorized dealer.

Unfortunately people have been having issues since 2015 when the new gen/ body style came out.  They do have vents in them. One of the main reasons the rear was redesigned is more than likely attributed to Ford's attempt to mitigate the expense of replacing the center light bar opposed to just having to replace the left and right sides. I'm not aware of any taillight differences between the models in the new refresh from 2019+

The salesman was actually correct and the condensation issue is mentioned in your owner's manual (page 85).  If you're under warranty and 'if' the moisture is very heavy (puddling at the bottom and large drops on the lens) you can probably get a replacement.  Otherwise, just fix them.  You'll find a 'how to' here: https://www.gadgetjq.net/edge/stuff/stuff.html#conden
Since you're a new owner you might want to check out the rest of the site (click the back to home page link at the top of that page) for some tips/tricks that'll make your ownership a lot more fun.

Cheers!
