Yeah that's what it says on their website too, so unless they just decided to be wayyyy more selective or everyone that got in doesn't go on LSN or tls, there should be more
To follow up on this line of thinking: I checked out LSN, and last year there were a total of about 170 applicants who registered as applying to Berkeley and who got accepted. This year, so far, there are only 31. Obviously maybe fewer people are filling out their profiles on LSN this year, but it's unlikely that it's majorly off-kilter from last year. Assuming the proportions are the same, then almost 5/6ths of Berkeley's offers have yet to be made. In which case Dean Tom has a lot of decisions left to make.
AD is more popular this year though than previous. I know that I don't use LSN in favor of AD.
