I think that statement means it was not authorized by Rand Paul or Rand Paul's re-election campaign committee.

It was technically authorized by RAND PAC, which is a separate entity (not a candidate or a candidate's committee). Since RAND PAC is led by Rand, you can assume Rand is behind the entire operation but the statement at the end of the ad is still technically correct.
