K-S2 / wrong image orientation tag?

Pentax K-S2 Review: Now Shooting! - Gallery

In this review, many portrait-oriented DNG samples are displayed in the wrong way (to see that you need to download a DNG file, e.g. the one with the red car, YIMGP2563.DNG). The reason is that the EXIF image orientation tag (0x0112) is wrong, it is 1 instead of 8 or 6. But what is the reason for this? At least one photo (YIMGP2681.DNG) has the right value (8), so the camera has a camera orientation sensor. Does it work not reliable? Is it an issue with the firmware that is corrected in the last version?

The JPEGs are fine, in spite to the fact that they also contain the false tag value.

Iím asking this question since Iím a software developer and now I try and understand what kind of issue is this (this might be a bug in my program! but a very strange one...).
