I think it is referring to their CDS (custom dial system) elevation markings being available in both standard and metric.

Metric format MRAD instead of MOA, adjustment usually
 0.2 MRAD per click = 2cm per 100m.

There is nothing metric about mrad clicks, technically speaking.

However, since marketing people usually do not know what metric (or mrad for that matter) means, they use the terms interchangeably.
