in your view if Soni made a copy of Lua and did not change the

functionality not present in vanilla Lua?
No, in both cases, it's not a fork. That's what the FAQ says.
If someone changes an opcode in the VM to bring old behaviour back (like
lua 5.3.4's OP_SELF only accepting strings), is that a fork?
