As far as I know, this is purely hypothetical.  The relevant text from 
the previous page is:

"22. An example of a document not supported wholly by the public 
knowledge base is provided below in two parts. This fictional example is 
constructed to convey some similarities to parts of reporting in the 
public knowledge base."


PS: Yes, there are quite a lot of interesting things in these documents 
other than the mention of Qubes and Whoonix [sic].  The use of a Tor 
hidden service with a partial name of "sunshine" is not lost on me, nor 
is it likely to be lost on Judge Aiken (though Mr. Peck would be well 
advised that Justice Brandeis actually used the word, "sunlight," and 
not, "sunshine").
