LED Bulbs are not a part 18 device. They are a Part 15 device and must
conform to FCC Class B Radiated & Conducted emissions limits if sold to the
general public for home use.
As an added note; I personally oversaw the testing and approval of the 3M
LED Bulbs. They meet FCC class B limits.

This may be a good one to complain about anyway given the broad spectrum
of interference reported; it will affect broadcast, air to ground
communications, police, fire and commercial radio reception as well.
FWIW, Part 97 is not where you should look for illumination devices;
look in Part 18. Harmful interference *is* unlawful.
PS: Apologies for mistaking you for the other Dale. He and I have been
working in EMC for years.
