Unlucky 13

Had to go check a press run the other day at 5 a.m. Wanted donuts afterward. Stopped at the local Bruno's. Bought this batch of donuts...

I thought a baker's dozen originated because the baker wanted to make sure the king got enough baked goods and didn't get shorted. Therefore the baker would include one extra baked good to insure at least a dozen. So what's it mean when I buy a "Baker's Dozen Doughnuts, 13 count" only to find out I got only 12?

Does it make it better or worse that when I turn over the package I discover the sticker that says...?
