"Keep away from fire" tag on wool sweater

Hi all,
After having had a satisfactory experience with Bexley shoes, I decided to try out a few other things from their inventory, including a "pure 100%" lambswool sweater. Although the sweater itself is very fine to the touch, I was surprised to see a "Keep away from fire" tag, which until now I have mostly seen on children's clothing, rarely on something else, and never on a men's 100% wool sweater. From what I've read elsewhere, the tag is obligatory for children's clothing that hasn't been treated with fire-retardant chemicals, independent of the composition. But in any case, wool in general should not be prone to combustion or to accellerate burning. Is this a French thing, seeing how the brand is from France? Or is the 100% wool tag fake? Looking forward to reading your experiences on this issue.

Hey, and you know, I try to follow it most of the time... But I mostly managed without the tags reminding me.
