That all depends what you mean by "Bugis keris". This certainly looks like a keris that has been deeply influenced by Bugis style keris. It also looks like a rather recently created blade. Bugis influences can be found all over the Indonesian archipelago. I am curious how the person who convinced you it was not Bugis identified it.

The pamor here is striking; somewhat like [not exactly like] a spinal column/ vertebrae and ribs, at least to my eye.
