Through a galaxy, darkly

This arXiv article says:

It is shown that the rotation curves for the Milky Way, NGC 3031, NGC 3198 and NGC 7331 are consistent with the mass density distributions of the visible matter concentrated in flattened disks. Thus the need for a massive halo of exotic dark matter is removed.

That’s quite a contradiction to other recent papers claiming to have found “the missing” Dark Matter for a famous corner case, no?
