It's not. They're confusing it with the center of pressure. The neutral point and the center of pressure are very closely related, but they're not synonomous.
No one's said anything about center of pressure here. I'm a bit confused about this post.

When the CG is located at the neutral point, the aircraft is on the line between dynamic stability and instability. The neutral point is fixed. The center of pressure, however, changes with flight control manipulation. It's close to the neutral point, but not precisely so.

For dynamic stability the CG is located forward of both.
