I thought EA had distro rights on this?

They were the original publisher. Although if it didn't sell as well as they hoped (which was rumored), it's possible DF bought it back on the cheap, afterwards.

Or that EA didn't bother to license the PC rights, or that there was an exclusivity period, or that the contract said if they didn't bother with PC the rights for PC would go back to EA after a specified time, or that DF licensed the PC rights from EA.

Could be a million things. And since DF has had experience with how difficult it is to get back rights (psychonauts), they may well have started writing into contracts terms to help them get PC rights if a company doesn't bother with PC.
