As we are at it, there is a similar quite likely wrong assumption about DreamOn Collection 3, probably just because DreamOn Collection 2 and 4 were bundled. On the other hand, 3 was actually given away in very limited quantities as part of the "Sega Premiere" pack.

Even Sega Retro seems to have just a copy/paste text from 2 and 4 when describing this disc. Although it could theoretically have also been bundled with DCs, the rarity of 3 compared to either 2 or 4 probably suggests that it was indeed only made for bundling with the "Premiere" press pack.
Hi, I dumped that disc back in 2010 so I can at least give you some additional information about my particular copy of the disc.
My copy of DreamOn Collection 3 came in the Dreamcast bundle I had bought at an online shop in 2003. The bundle consisted of the DC + 2 controllers + VMU, all unused. I remember that the disc came in the same cardboard box as the console in a standard clear jewel case. However, while the Dreamcast itself and the included cables and manuals etc. were brand new, the DreamOn disc obviously wasn't, as it had quite a few scratches on it. Also, it wasn't mentioned anywhere that a demo disc was included in the package, neither on the box of the Dreamcast nor in the listing on the shop's website.
So yeah, I'd say it's unlikely - at least in my case - that the disc was originally bundled with the console. I guess the shop just added whatever demo disc they had lying around to my particular package as a bonus. The "Premiere" disc you showed wasn't included, btw.
