You are correct that some 2012 MacBook Pro's did have a 16gig ram upgrade option. These were the 2012 retina MacBook Pro's. They could be upgraded/configured to 16gig at the time of purchase only (not upgradeable after purchase by the end-user).

All of the "regular" 2012 MacBook Pro's that do have upgradeable ram by the end-user...(according to Apple)...have an official max ram of 8gig. Unofficially they can be upgraded to 16gig.

It would be VERY unusual for these "regular" 2012 MacBook Pro's to be upgradeable to 32gig of ram...since this would be 4x more than Apple officially recommends. And as far as I know...no Apple computer has ever had a max ram that was 4x the "offical max" from Apple. Lots of models have been 2x greater...but never 4x greater than Apple's official max.
