In short, the Archives doesn't proactively examine all records that enter the open period, this is normally only done when a request for access is received from a member of the public. A request to have a record examined for public release can be submitted by registered users by clicking on the 'Request copy' link shown on the item entry in Recordsearch.
More information on access to records held by the National Archives can be found at http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/fact-sheets/fs10.aspx
