Nope.  CRS-12 was a new spacecraft.  It used Dragon spacecraft C113, the 13th and final new Dragon spacecraft capsule planned to be manufactured by SpaceX.  Future missions will use refurbished recovered capsules.

Yes, CRS-11 was the first to reuse a capsule and land (splash) it twice.

The Dragon 1 with the exposed CBM has been there for months, and the "Dragon 2" is just a mockup.
