Mens High Bar Connection question

In the current COP men get connection points for ''In-Bar elements + Flight elements'' ...one would interpret this then as Group III + Group II connected or vice versa... why then are gymnasts receiving the connection bonus for doing a 'Stoop in shoot and 1/2 t. thr hdst. in ovgr.' Group IV box 4. (considered an El-grip and dorsal hang element) connected to a Group II release (i.e Tkatchev, Def, etc)?
Is it just that the judges are interpreting the rule how they see fit, or the FIG mislabelling some of the Group IV elements? or better yet should they just ratify the rule to say 'On-Bar element + Flight element' Things that make you go hmm........
