Nope. You just don't understand the science. I haven't read the article, but they are almost certainly talking about the fact that it has undergone little to no processing. In other words, no volcanism, no plate tectonics etc. Similar to comets. And yes, everything in the solar system is roughly 4.5 Ga old. Material from an asteroid was recently dated to that age. Meteorites are dated to that age, etc. Probably best if you leave science to those that actually understand it.
