i know its actually shop responsibility to replace the device if no sollution given by apple,but they said will not give any refund or replacement because the iCloud activation lock its still enabled on this device

At this point you are correct.
If your uncle purchased it from an unauthorized retailer then they will not help you.
If the Greek shop sold it and it is locked it may not have been brand new, but used and resealed.

Thanks for posting with us and welcome to our Community Forums.
We can understand wanting assistance with your MacBook M1. However, from what you’ve shared here, it appears this computer was not purchased from Best Buy but through another place.
Given this is the case, we’re unable to provide the information you need and hence we recommend you contact the place of purchase as they will be best suited to help.
All the best,
