It is also common for cars to be allowed to un-lap themselves during a safety car.

This doesn't mean they completed less laps than the race.
IMHO, It would have been just as easy and more fair to do the following. Call lead lap cars to the front behind the safety car. Cars a lap down could then fall inline without gaining an advantage. YES, I'm sure there is some rule against it.

I've never liked unfair wave arounds in any series. If you are a lap down you screwed up and shouldn't be awarded for it.

Lapped cars didn't "Complete" few laps they "Competed" fewer laps. In other words they got a free parade lap while the leaders had to sit and suck on it.
