Yeah, the Daily Mail article goes by the wiki squad lists - we went through this on the Bath board for ours.
For us, they counted:

Kolpak: Francois Louw, Mike Williams and Josh Matevesi - with Matevesi being born in Cornwall and holding a British passport
EU: Jack Davies - who was born in Swindon and holds a British passport, but played for Spain U18 (mother IIRC)
Other overseas: Jackson Willison, Lucas Paz

So 2 out of our 6 overseas players are English; whilst the 2 genuine Kolpak players have both been in the country plenty long enough to get settled status (assuming that applies to Kolpak as well as EU)
