I've no problem with the Air Order. I've a problem creating "Season" that don't exists in Japan.
The Japanese website is updated, since they even give the blurays releases date, the PVs, and even Claris ED. It shows that it's called Owarimonogatari and not "Owarimonogatari Second Season" like CR and Aniplex USA decided (also Aniplex Japan never called it like that in press or news: http://www.aniplex.co.jp/lineup/etc/mon ... x.html#tab)
Wikipedia JP put it also in Owarimonogatari: https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E7%B5%82 ... 9%E8%AA%9E / Moreover, the episodes are in SP1 and SP2.
The BluRays show only the title: 終物語 and not 終物語 2nd Season or whatever.
On broadcast page they are shown on the same page as Owarimonogatari: http://cal.syoboi.jp/tid/3898/time
More sources showing that it's Specials and not Season 2 like Aniplex USA shows:

https://youtu.be/7WdyIcDlK2o <== Official PV (shows Owarimonogatari alone, with the arc names, no Season 2)
https://abema.tv/channels/new-anime/slo ... MH3w68ng7H <== Official Broadcaster, show the Special (SP)
http://www.monogatari-series.com/owarimonogatari/ <== Official Website
https://twitter.com/nisioisin_anime <== Official Twitter shows Owarimonogatari, no season 2, and numerous time SP for Special.
Meanwhile we only have CR and Aniplex USA (aniplex JP show it as Owarimonogatari) calling it Season 2.
But what they make "special/SP" about this is the method of broadcast. We can still turn and twist to for a season with split-cour rules etc. . Maybe ManiacB can chime in since it was probably him who removed the specials ...
