I just got back from the asian market where I picked up 2 packages of "glutan dough". It was in the refrigerated section near the tofu and looks sort of like a dense brown bread. Is that seitan?

A quick search on google doesn't seem to indicate it's used for making bread, but they do refer to gluten dough a lot. Based on that, I'd have to say that it is very likely you have seitan but I'm not truly sure of that (I've just discovered Asian markets myself so I'm not quite familiar with what they have or how to use it).

Are there cooking instructions on the package?

From what I understand gluten is the raw product and seitan is the cooked product.

If there are no instructions on the package, I would take maybe half of a package and simmer it in broth for about an hour or so and see what happens.

It could be flour that has had extra gluten to the flour added .It makes the flour stretch , used a lot in pizzas the fact the you found it in the freezer would be right as with gluten flour you can refrigerate for around 24 hours

The dozen or so references on the web I looked at confirmed this. It is likely vital wheat gluten mixed with water to form a dough, ready to be cooked into Seitan by boiling or baking.
