Tubeless tires on tube rims?

Well, I just got my Kenda K761 tires today, website said tube type, and the sticker on the tire says tubeless. Well, the CRF250L has tubes. I can't send the tires back, and don't care to lose money and time on selling them to someone else. Is it possible to put tubeless tires (with tubes inside them) on tube type rims? What are the issues that arise from that?

I have Michelin Commander IIs on my V-Star 650, which has spoke rims. On the sidewall of both tires is a little note for the literate mechanics: On Tube-Type Rim, Fit Tube. This applies to all tubeless tires.

I've run tubeless tyres with tubes ever since buying the bike 3 years ago. No problems at all. In fact, the bike came with tubeless tyres as OE from BMW! I ride an F800GS.

If a mechanic needs to read that, literacy is hardly his problem! But yeah some DIY somewhere saw that the tire said "tubeless", tried running it without a tube, and then sued or at least complained.....

I'll admit to being a fan of running tubes in tubeless tires with at least two tire/wheel locks. Of course, I think double-bagging-it is a good idea at times.
