Fungus on lenses?

What is B and H's policy on fungus on used lenses? If a lens has fungus is it disclosed? Or does it just drop the rating number? I'm curious if I'd be safe buying a used lens from B and H with a rating of 9 or 9+ that the lens would be free of fungus.

I spoke with our Used Dept Director and he said: "Fungus would be cleaned whenever possible and a 9 rating should be free of fungus. If we cannot clean it, there will be a notation for the lens condition."
