I think this all checks out as obvious value add for them.

We pay our employees $20/hr for contributions to OSS and tech communities

I imagine this is pretty cheap compared with their salaries and probably leads to employee happiness, recruiting opportunities, and ongoing education. It seems like they thought this out and designed it in a way it definitely helps the company and contributes money to employees for things they'd previously been doing for free.
