Again, I would say that they are using the Astronomical syetem which has mathimatical implcations of the number system.

There are two ways to represent dates:
1. The Gregorian calendar, the older Julian calendar, the Caesar’s calendar and the Anno Domini.

2. The Astronomical notation and the ISO 8601:2004 (previously ISO 8601:2000)

The first representation does not consider the mathematical algorithm of the number system ranging from -1/0/+1. But recognizes BC and AD

The second representation, that is the astronomical year numbering recognizes zero implying date from -1/0+1 but does not recognize BC and AD
Finally, 1BC for Gregorian equals zero for Astronomical and 1AD for Gregorian equals 1 for Astronomical depending on what date you are referring to.
