Forum application not provided by GitLab?

When signing up for these forums using my GitLab login, the authorization confirmation dialog said that the forums are not provided by GitLab:

Please note that this application is not provided by GitLab and you should verify its authenticity before allowing access.

Am I correct in my assumption that this message is wrong, and that these forums actually are provided by GitLab? Namely, that the message is probably a general purpose one for any integration with GitLab, stating that the application isn’t provided by GitLab even in cases where it is?
