You're probably right. The funny thing is, I would never even think to consider the stuff with asbestos in it as "floor tiles." To me, "tile" means something made out of clay and fired in an oven. The rubber stuff (that may or may not have asbestos fibres in it) is "resilient flooring."
Yeah, that's my line of work (design and construction, not laying flooring). That's not a smarty-pants work-around, that's a professional perspective.
