Correct, as long as everything is put back together at the proper ratios then it would still be considered whole grain. The definition isn’t concerned if grain is intact/whole, just that the components that make up the grain kernel are present in the same amounts seen in nature.

I wouldn’t be surprised if after milling the components were stored. Since grains have a pretty low water content there is a low likelihood of microbial growth or degradative enzymatic reactions.
