For an e-publication to have been published in the sense of the Code, it needs to have been registered in ZooBank, and the ZooBank record needs to have indicated an online archive (other than the publisher) into which a copy of the electronic publication was intended to have been deposited.

If you can provide a specific example, I can investigate it for you.
