I wouldn't be 100% confident in that. They still have the following disclaimer at the top of the page --

"With SkyMiles, partner-marketed flights that are ticketed by Delta will earn miles toward Award Travel based on ticket price, instead of distance flown. So when you pay a higher price, you will be rewarded with more miles — up to 75,000 per ticket.
Partner-marketed flights that are not ticketed by Delta will continue to earn miles based on a percentage of distance flown* as determined by the fare class paid."

Could be they just decided not to re-iterate these conditions on every partner page.
