It looks as though the same qualities that make it good for chelating also causes it to absorb and hold herbicides...
It reads a lot like char, in fact, only char simply adsorbs as opposed to actually absorbing as stated in the article...

I would imagine there are any number of things that herbicide might bind with in the soils, and this is just one more... this one evidently will never 'let go'... interesting...
