I like your theory. It could be legit and it's actually better to think of it that way since the bull was severely underwhelming. We'll never get confirmation from the developers anyway. It always surprised me that none of those who worked on the games became a fan themself and boarded these forums

Youre welcome!
It is only a theory but I feel it makes the most sense in the story

It feels simplier. Set is a god of evil who posseses evil people by default.
Lara and Jean are therefore immune just because of their good intentions.
The Red Eyes react to Lara like "gonna kill y- oh, you got the key? enter".
Instead they kill the guide when they see no Amulet present with him.
Same happens in Cairo, the crusaders obey Von Croy but chase Lara.
Those minor foes are evil but only care who opened their place as admin.
All that would make the Amulet able to keep all evil entities contained.
It would however grant it no possesion powers, which go to Seth only.
Von Croy's possesion ends when the amulet is used for the last time.
But it's not the amulet lifting the charm, but Set's energy being cut off.

As for revolver in the cutscenes, getting it from the guide is more epic.
So it was likely the original idea, but appeared too OP for early game.
Nerfing the gun wasn't a solution as it would make it too weak later.
And that's how it passed from epic cutscene to a random Cairo guy...
