External hard drive, internal condensation?

I just bought a new external hard drive, a 4tb unit from Seagate (This is the web page: https://www.seagate.com/consumer/backup/expansion-hard-drive/?sku=STEB4000100) When it was delivered it sat outside in 9 degree cold for over 24 hours then brought indoors and has sat unopened for about 2 days.

When it was delivered it sat outside in 9 degree cold for over 24 hours then brought indoors and has sat unopened for about 2 days. It is still sealed, still in the packing envelope. My question is: I know you let the unit acclimate after cold weather but could condensation have formed inside the unit? And if it did would it leave trace contaminants on the drive itself? I don't think there are any large vents on the case and I think the box is closed off to a degree, but would this still happen? If it's anywhere possible I think I'd feel better and get an exchange delivered when it's warmer. Thanks in advance!
