Of course it can. The tag on the seat belt may not necessarily be as same as the YOM of the vehicle. The most reliable method to find out is VIN or chassis number.

There may be so many places to check the MF year in a vehicle. Why you are so interested in checking from seat belts.....?

As mentioned above, just use the VIN/Chassis number and use an online VIN decoder.

Year in the seat belt is the manufactured year for the belt not necessary the car

Your car belt could have been replaced by an old belt, check the other belts as well

There are VIN decoders freely available in the net which can give you basic information 

You can check with the agent if you want to be sure.

If you have already purchased the vehicle what is the use.

Input the Chassis number of the car here:

CarVX

This may help you to retrieve some original data of JDM vehicles.
