Reading between the lines, one gets the impression that it's just a scanner, nothing more fancy. It is possible for them to get a better result with this combination though.
I've certainly done similar things. If you have an instrument, then you can create a scanner calibration chart on the printer, create the reference file on the instrument, and then create the scanner profile in the usual way.
The result is that the scanner is much closer to reading colorimetric values for that print device. This is only useful of course, if the resulting scanner profile is distributed to those without the instrument, but have the same printer and scanner.
