Love the way the picture has been "treated" to reduce the quality... Fantastic - thanks for posting!
Something like this would virtually never be 'off the cuff' in the way that you describe, ie literally played for the first time on the night.
I would certainly still describe it as 'off the cuff' as Brian described if Taylor Hawkins contacted them, for example, a day or two before and said - 'hey, why don't you and Roger come and play on Tuesday night; pop down to soundcheck and we'll run through some tracks".
I don't think Brian is trying to deceive anyone, and it certainly didn't seem to be something overly rehearsed, judging by the soundcheck timing mistakes!!
