The ref ranges given are far too conservative to sustain optimal health a) in otherwise healthy individuals & b) in other health conditions.

No mention is made of K2, which is essential to prevent hypercalcaemia. When K2 is supplemented with D3, at a ratio of 100mcg K2 per 10,000 IU D3, no hypercalcaemia occurs, and hypercalcaemia is the event otherwise described by the medical profession as Vitamin D Toxicity. K2 picks up any excess blood calcium and sends it into the bones, including the teeth.

Vitamin D is a vitamin.
If you have no exposure to sunlight and no animal fat in your diet, you would have a severe deficiency in Vitamin D.

By your argument, you could also argue that Vitamin C is not a vitamin because if not for a single gene defect in humans, humans would be able to manufacture their own Vitamin C just as nearly all mammals do.
