No it means their detection script needs to be upgraded.
Their site may even be Flash 3 with an outdated message.
Flash 4 plugins will play Flash .swf and .spl files with Flash 1, 2, 3,
4 and even the old Futurewave Splash .spl content.

> Does this mean I have to find the FLASH 2 plug-in somewhere?
Not to view Flash 2.
