Yeah, that was just for 2020 because of list reductions from 38 to 36 for primary list.This is from last year around the Betts & Kennedy moves to rookie list.
Mentions rule change.
"Carlton’s list announcements come after the AFL confirmed clubs would be able to move two senior players to their rookie list effective immediately.
“It is also a terrific result that we have been able to re-contract Matthew now, without having to endure the wait until the rookie draft,” Lloyd said. “Matthew was keen to stay at the club and we wanted to keep him, so to have that finalised now is a great outcome for all parties.
“We would like to acknowledge the AFL for delivering a rule this off-season that removes that unnecessary anxiety that can exist in the lead up to a draft for uncontracted players.”

AFL clubs will now be allowed to move two players straight from the senior list to the rookie list, without going through a drafting processwww.afl.com.au
That was not held over for 2021 though. An article in August of this year said that temporary condition was for last year.
I posted the bit below last week sometime but probably in another thread..
The bolded bit below covers LOB as would assume the reason they already saying he going on rookie list is some contract for 2022 at rookie list conditions been agreed
"But the rule that allowed clubs to move primary-listed players to the rookie list between the first and second list lodgment periods to open up senior spots will not be permitted this off-season.
In a memo to clubs, the AFL said that there is "no forecast changes to list sizes for 2022" and that the one-off rule was brought in last season due to the changes that came late in the piece with list sizes and structures.
They will, however, be able to shift players on the senior list to the rookie list in the time between the national and rookie drafts if the player is contracted for 2022.
Meanwhile, clubs have been told they will have to again select a minimum of three players at the NAB AFL Draft after last year only needing to take one because of list reductions. The three live picks can include promoted rookies (before or after the national draft), national draft picks and pre-season draft selections."
