Claim to recover FileMaker "one-way hash" passwords

The FileMaker Security Guide says:

"Passwords are stored using a one-way hash, meaning the password can be encrypted but never decrypted. Therefore it is only possible to reset a password and not recover a password."

Yet a number of applications claim to be able to recover FileMaker passwords, even .fmp12.

E.g. http://www.password-service.com/filemaker-password-recovery.php


Which is true?
