That map is curious as its showing FTTP in a few areas on my exchange but I'm unable to confirm that anywhere else.  One of the areas BT don't even have that estate listed on their broadband checker as its too new.

Andrew will likely use the OpenReach checker rather than the BT Wholesale checker to confirm availability.

He added my development to their maps about a month before it was showing available on the BT Wholesale checker.
The OpenReach site was showing availability.

I could order FTTP from ISP's who don't use BT Wholesale but couldn't order from those that do like BT or Cerberus.

Its certainly interesting as I think SamKnows said FTTP available in some areas for quite some time.  So I guess some new builds got it?

BT built some brownfield FTTP a few places in 2009-2010. They then realised how expensive it was and wound back their ambitions for FTTP while increasing coverage ambitions for FTTC.

Andrew does occasionally get it wrong, one of my friends moved into a local new build, his map showed FTTP,, but the checker said no, turns out there was some confusion over the postcode location IIRC. Somewhere nearby which does have FTTP wasn't shown and it should have been that location.
