So I called them and they said the removal from prescreened offers is part of the freeze, which I didn't see or missed. They won't even talk about it unless I get a credit report.
Try calling or looking at this website to see if you can get back in on the prescreened offers: 1-888-5-OPTOUT or visiting www.optoutprescreen.com

Thanks for the data point though, it's unfortunate that they do this automatically. Although if you're doing it for security purposes, I can understand the logic behind experian doing this.
