Website Advertising Policy

Does the U.S. Postal Service have an official rule against boxes that have advertising on them?

I recently went to my local U.S. Postal Service branch. I was reusing a small box that came from FreshDirect. So, the box had some advertising on it that included the FreshDirect name and logo. The lady at the counter said that they will not ship boxes that have advertising on them. She said that I need to cover up the advertising. I found this to be very strange because I’ve used old amazon.com boxes that were the same size and had advertising on them to mail things via the U.S. Postal service before. I also looked on the USPS website and found no mention of a policy against advertising on boxes. So my question is: Does the U.S. Postal Service have an official rule against boxes that have advertising on them or was this lady just giving me a hard time for no apparent reason?

Their policy says, “If you are reusing a box, cover all previous labels and markings with heavy black marker or adhesive labels.”
