Here's W0YK's explanation. The scoring is correct. The rules had a mistake:
Hi, Richard. WriteLog, and other loggers, are scoring correctly. A
typo crept into the 2009 WPX RTTY rules when I was trying to converge
them to the CW/SSB rules where the specific rule intent was the same.
In the case of RTTY, a basic difference is that US states and VE areas
are mults just like countries are mults in Europe. So, the low-band
point differential follows.
You and Susan are on my list for reviewing the next rules before
