I'm familiar with Dimmable and non Dimmable LED bulbs but these work with conventional lamp dimmers. As far as I know there are only lamp dimmers and motor controllers (fan speed controllers) that can't be interchanged. I suspect the LED compatibility marking on the dimmer package is just marketing and new labeling and you still need a dimmable LED bulb
