Could the framing issue be due to damage of the original negative for that episode? Maybe the edges had damage that was too expensive to restore, so a decision was made to crop instead?
It's certainly possible, but there's a few things I can think of which make that rather unlikely:

  • The TV Transmitted Area they're supposed to be using is already set back pretty far from the edges of the negative.
  • Every time a live-action VFX shot is shown, they consistently go back to the larger DVD equivalent area; no problem there.
  • They probably wouldn't have chosen the episode for the sampler in the first place if they noticed it had significant damage.
