As far as I'm aware, they test the cars as supplied by the manufacturer, including the provided child restraint seats.
So two possibilities spring to mind:
1) Renault provided a non-ISOfix seat that still provided adequate protection.
2) They 'modified' (read 'hacked through') the seats in order to fit ISOfix seats.
The actual report is a bit vague, saying no more than that the provided seat fits to attachments on the adult seat (no mention of ISOfix.)

Later models (certainly the phase II) have zips in the seats so that the ISOfix rails can go through without resorting to the use of a Stanley knife.
I don't suppose you'd be that fussed about cutting the seats if you were about to do this to the car
