I don't know if it is relevant, but there are at least two Apple Thunderbolt Displays: I bought one in July and it came with a Thunderbolt, USB and Magsafe cables but it only has three USB ports, no Thuderbolt or Firewire ports.

I don't exactly know how to check this (poke around in System Profiler), but I strongly suspect what you have there is an LED Cinema Display which has USB ports but not FireWire or Thunderbolt.

I can find no indication anywhere that there are multiple Thunderbolt Display models out there.

Perhaps it was mis-boxed?
