Piano reduction = urtext?

This has been bugging me for a little while; how can the piano reduction of Vanhal's double bass concerto edited by Rudolf Malarić be an urtext edition if it is itself an arrangement? We know for a fact that it isn't the composer's piano reduction, because the only source we have is the set of parts that is also on IMSLP (praise be).

I've got another Doblinger/Malarić publication in a similar predicament.
