Yep, as stated this is pretty normal procedure.
In all honesty i wouldnt stress about a refurb.
Refurb's are great, i dont know why people have a stigma about them.
Refurb's are 9 times out of 10 units that were DOA, got returned, then were thoroughly inspected by a technician on all points of operation, fixed whatever the issue was (usually something stupid like a bad solder point) and sold at a much lower price.
The best part is your refurb is GUARANTEED to work properly, whereas your brand new unit isnt guaranteed to do squat, thus the warranty.
