From the TL:DR details anything below XAJ70042 is safe. Most likely yours must be unpatched. Run the test and check to be sure.

If you want a Switch with a specific Firmware preinstalled, buy one that is in between the serial ranges. This was before the fg hardware exploint announcement/release
so it doesn't really matter anymore.
Ok. I checked a local store here. It's not sold official in my country. These guys are importing from SG. The is no bar code on the outer box nor a serial number. He was willing to open and show me the serial number on the console. It was stuck on the underside of the console and a small sticker.

Now the serial number was something like XAJ70038. Is this a patched unit? I wasn't able to conclude from OP.

Pretty sure it's unpatched (most likely 4.0.1).
It's not listed as patched and patched units start from 4.1.0.

I take no responsibility though ^^

Yes. Also, any Switch can get into the RCM mode, doesn't matter if unpatched oder patched. Please ask qustions about uploading
the payload and getting into RCM in the appropriated threads.

Do you really live in North Korea? Sceptical

No, I think there are one or two more in this thread, but XAK is so rare that a inclusion in the OP
is not really worth it. Is your Switch patched?

Oh, How regretful. The people of Gonghwa-Gook should actively share about this information (if they can be connected to here).

Is your Switch patched?
Fortunately, Not patched. I have successed to run Lakka-switch on it.

Why North and not South?
