Hey Paul.
You started quite a hunt here in the office, trying to clearly establish the trail the Amazon Smile donations take.  We can now confirm that those donations are deposited directly into our bank account periodically, and they never hit our donation database.  So we will not be asking Mozilla to match that money.

Mozilla is being extremely generous with us, and we could ask them to include the Amazon Smile deposits, but I kinda feel like that's cheating, since those are already given in part based on Amazon's generosity.
