Weird knitting charting

Copied from my public Ravelry project:
I am finding this pattern1 tricky because in the past charts have been numbered bottom to top and right to left but this is numbered left to right and not numbered at all vertically. There is also no chart symbol key and so I don’t know that the darker grey shaded squares with no lettering/symbol are supposed to mean.

Am I right that this charting is strange? Is it just me?
I am also finding it does not match up with the rows knitted before the chart kicks in and so I must be misreading the chart somehow.
