Don't know if it's a bug or not (that take me a while to figured this but)
Here is a log from the console..

<c4d.BaseObject object called 'Arnold cylinder_light/Arnold Light' with ID 1030424 at 0x000001179A329C10>

Why CheckType return True?
Using GetType working fine

if Arnoldcylinderlight.GetType() != 5102:

while not CheckType don't.

if not Arnoldcylinderlight.CheckType(5102) :

This is not a bug. The documentation states that C4DAtom.CheckType() checks if the atom is an instance of a base type. And it should be true that an Arnold Light is an instance of c4d.Olight base type ( 5102 ).
Note C4DAtom.IsInstanceOf() does exactly the same as C4DAtom.CheckType() but its name is better.

Thanks you for the informations for acheving that I was sure we must use C4DAtom.GetClassification()
Then for me the only solution is by doing if Arnoldcylinderlight.GetType() != 5102:

It's jsut curiosity since I get everything working ^^.
