They do list ways of fighting it though, mainly making watermarks inconsistent across images by warping them.

To pull this off, its engineers built a smart watermark technology that counteracts the algorithm by deliberately inserting minor inconsistencies in the watermark patterns. The solution purportedly uses machine learning to continuously confuse Google’s software.

That's exactly what Google said in their blog post for them to do. :(

I think this might be really liberal use (or more accurately complete ignorance) of the phrase reverse engineered.
