They probably told you that because, as the article said, the recall hasn't been actually put into place yet. Check back next month.

I think you are right, though, that it's all of the '05s and '06s. This is a portion of what's on Safecar.gov I added the emphasis in the second line myself):

"Summary:

SUBARU WILL CONDUCT A SAFETY RECALL (09V-277) ON ALL 15, 633 MODEL YEAR (MY) 2005 AND MY 2006 BAJA VEHICLES, INCLUDING TURBO AND NON-TURBO MODELS. SUBARU HAS IDENTIFIED A DEFECT IN WHICH CRACKS DEVELOP IN THE FUEL HOSE CONNECTION (NIPPLE) ON THE OUTLET (PRESSURE) SIDE OF THE FUEL PUMP. THIS CONDITION CAN RESULT IN A PRESSURIZED LEAK OF GASOLINE FROM THE FUEL PUMP. SUBARU'S ANALYSIS OF SAMPLE PARTS COLLECTED FROM THE FIELD CONFIRMED THE ISSUE TO BE LIMITED TO MY 2005 AND MY 2006 VEHICLES ONLY. SUBARU DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP BRACKET, INCLUDING ALL NIPPLES, WITH A VERSION THAT HAS BEEN MODIFIED FOR INCREASED STRENGTH. PLEASE SEE SUBARU'S DEFECT REPORT IN THE RECALL FILE (09V-277) FOR MORE DETAILS. THIS INVESTIGATION IS CLOSED."
