Sorry little confused, does it mean that the report should have a line containing public record to be eligible here?

 Looks to me like that is what it means. I didn't read every detail since it does not pertain to me.  Read the info on the linked page.

This means:

"At the time of the requests, their credit file disclosures contained one or more public record items (such as a bankruptcy, lien or judgment). Equifax did not identify its public records vendor(s) as the source(s) of the public record information consumer credit file disclosures it provided to Plaintiffs."
