Used in the correct application, any of the those items would be compliant.

More info on the panels

Main service panel looking at it has a main breaker installed up top that says main and turns on and off up and down position.

Main lug panel has busses with lugs and a breaker is added at the top with sideways action.

This describes a main lug panel with a breaker (back-fed) to provide a disconnect. You do not need a breaker installed in a main lug panel to use it as a service panel. The disconnect breaker can be installed remote from the panel and the feeder connected directly to the panel main lugs. A very common installation scenario.
