The article is as can be expected, short on good facts/details. It says guns w/o serial numbers are banned. Does this effect all those pre-68 unserialized guns you already own or is it just focused on the oh so deadly "ghost" gun?
This is a great catch on your part.
But this doesn't mean that you need to use a DPS-3 to buy or sell an unfinished frame of less than 80% completion. The law does not say this.
There is no reason for this to be there other than in preparation for another law next year that considers blocks of aluminum to be firearms. ;-)
Take a read of the actual bill as passed. It requires you to get a serial number from the DESPP once you build up a firearm from an unfinished receiver/frame.
