Certified Used Vehicle question

Can a vehicle be sold as Certified Used Vehicle if it has had body work and or repainted? I would imagine yes?

Just wondering cause I bought a 2012 focus and later in brighter sunlight realized it had some body work in addition to being repainted. Also there was some small gouges in the inner door panel from where the inside door panel had been removed (near the door handle). Carfax showed everything checked out, it was a perfect report and only 2k miles on the car. The sales people at first denied that it had been repainted telling me it was a bad buff, but a paint meter the following weekend + the small gouges on the passenger side reveal otherwise.

I feel scammed, but I guess I'm just another sucker.... I regret my purchase, although the car is still pretty nice.
