That is indeed completely wrong. They're messing with the system/ tree and that's not allowed. It wasn't allowed in 3.0 or any release after. "It worked" is not a defense.

And that's why it's not running.

It means their integration method was wrong and they built a time bomb that just went off.

This is a vendor's product that they integrated improperly and would probably have to fix to support 4.1.

But if you want screw around with it, I told you the answer in the first email, flows are auto-registered based on being under the flows folder with the right naming conventions. I doubt very much that that alone would be enough to get it working, but I don't know.
