The parents' "confirmed with DNA" indicators were removed because the DNA confirmation is undocumented.

Please see this G2G article on DNA confirmation for more information and guidance on proper documentation.

"If there isn't a proper source citation the "Confirmed with DNA" relationship status should be removed (by you or another member)."
