Yes, most pipe has DWV on it, Sch-40 is just describing the wall thickness. Alot of non-pressure rated fittings are thinwall PVC which isn't Sch-40, that maybe what your seeing.

Okay now one of the mysteries of life makes sense. I guess I'll have to go return my couplings then?

Those couplings are pressure rated but you should still use pipe instead. The pipe is a better fit, cheaper, and cas no flow constrictions.

Keep your couplers for another project and buy some pipe.
