Are rock sector shops supposed to have crystal weapons?

Title.

I was in a rock controlled sector, and when I went to a shop it showed me that I had the option of purchasing a crystal lockdown bomb. This is the first time I've ever seen a crystal weapon outside of the secret sector, and it's throwing me off. Is this a bug? Oversight? Intended?

Yes, it is intended,
but only the lockdown bomb.

Specifically, this was added in the most recent update.

Does anyone know why?

The weapon was considered to be way underused, as it was even more rare to get than the crystal cruiser. I guess the defs did not want to let the nice tactical uses it offers go to wast like that.
