I thought we had long established that she was a STOBAR carrier so therefore no cat should not be surprising. Perhaps Im missing something there?

The Chinese were running around stating their 2nd carrier would have cats. The Shandong or whatever it was going to be called would be a weird hybrid of the STOBAR and CATOBAR carriers. However, there are no cats.
Look closer for the last bit. Its not the lack of aircraft, but it might have a nontrivial impact on what aircraft it can carry.
