Please Help - British Citizenship Question - Born in Hong Kong

Moving back to the UK : British Expat Discussion Forum - britishexpats.com
My wife was born in Hong Kong to British expat parents in 1972. All had right of abode in the UK. She became a Citizen of the UK and Colonies at birth, and then a British Citizen on January 1 1983 (along with everyone else).

My question is this: the FCO is saying that she is a British Citizen by Decent, but as she was born in a former colony (when there was no citizenship distinction), should she not be classed as being a British Citizen otherwise than by decent, just like her parents and everyone else born in the UK?

Any help/advice would be appreciated.
