They used an other treatment to kill all the weeds before planting
No Idea which one but it was forbidden to use any more , Probably Gramoxone
the advice was to use Round up as you said
they sprayed in a frost free period in the winter and seeded early spring
all as usual as they did years before
what I think is that little amounts where still active
and where absorbed by the cotyledons when the seeds germinated
