TDP is largely arbitrary.
They can target whatever TDP they like with whatever core count they like as long as long as they bin properly and limit all-core turbo to a reasonable figure.
If they are going back to solder on these parts, that could explain some of it as well as a significant portion of the cooling requirements (which is what TDP is) on the non-metal TIM parts is expended on the additional thermal resistance.
Of course, I wouldn't take this chart for granted either.
