Not only does it clearly state it, but it would be amazingly stupid if they randomly passed out the unmasking results to people that didn't request it.
It's not random. The list of recipients most likely has offices which get a copy of any requests made, period.
I am guessing those offices are most of the blacked out ones.
It doesn't really change the fact that this is a the recipients list.

Chasing the flynn leak
Who takes the fall?
I think this here is gonna be the problem. There's not gonna be any way to prove who leaked it. We know it was likely one of these people on the list. But you can't charge them all with leaking it, you have to know specifically who did it. If they all just stick together, no one is gonna get charged.

The names on the list are those who wanted information about General Michael Flynn specifically.
Wrong. Read the top of the page at the start of the list - "Below is a list of recipients who MAY have received Lt. Gen Flynn's identity in response to a request between Nov 8 2016 and an Jan 31 2017"
When you ask to unmask something, you don't know who you are unmasking. These are just the requests for unmasking, yes we know at least one of them was the call on Flynn, but we don't know who got it.
