Could he have mistakenly been referring to iMovie? Final Cut hasn't come pre-installed on Macs for a while now, if ever. I don't know if Best Buy pays for a license for the software on its demo computers, but I'd guess that would be quite expensive.

Agreed, the software on display Macbooks in stores is iMovie. Very similar to Final Cut Pro and enough for most people. If you want the power of Final Cut Pro, I would have recommended a Macbook Pro over the Macbook Air as well. The Air is simply too slow to adequately encode video, unless it is 720x480 video or you have LOTS of time to wait on the video the encode.
