According to the 2006 brochure on the wayback machine http://web.archive.org/web/20051109132750/http://www.sjscycles.com/thornpdf/ThornClubTourBroHiRes.pdf there was a 533S but no 555S. Going by the ebay descriptions those frames were manufactured in 2009.

That would certainly explain why the current model has disc mounts on the frame and the Ebay versions do not.

Yep, only the Mk4 takes discs, all previous models don't.
