No one is selling a pure polyurethane finish, and almost no one is selling a pure alkyd finish. They are all blends, because each one on its own is not very desirable. So I would not put a lot of stock in what a product calls itself.

That said, anything labeled as “oil” finish is most likely heavily alkyd based – Danish oil, tung oil, oil finish. Probably easier to go based off of the properties of the finished product rather than what the manufacturer markets the product as.
