31 Releases - Is it possible mine is different?

I’m holding a disc of Billy Joel’s The Stranger https://musicbrainz.org/release-group/735bcee6-6be6-3957-af15-d21ba2bd355b

The barcode is different from all of the others listed (9399708231122). Of the 7 without barcodes 4 are vinyl and 1 is digital. Of the other two, one is from Japan and has a different catalog number. The last one has the same catalog number but is from the Netherlands.

I’m in the US. Is it safe to assume my CD is from the US, Canada or Worldwide releases? How do I verify? Is this a new release in the database?

Yes, a different barcode warrants a new release. You can often find some information on discogs: https://www.discogs.com/master/57029
