Now scientists say that as well as this designation, ‘Oumuamua might be a comet after all.

Writing in the journal Nature, ... researchers reveal ... they came to the conclusion by studying the path of ‘Oumuamua ... they found the path could not be explained solely by the influence of the Sun, moon, planets and other large objects in the solar system. Instead they discovered another form of acceleration, not linked to gravity, also appears to be at play.

It means they used the wrong word, but I'd like to know what they were actually trying to say.

No they used the right word...
Organic chemistry is a chemistry subdiscipline involving the scientific study of the structure, properties, and reactions of organic compounds and organic materials, i.e., matter in its various forms that contain carbon atoms.
