Bitter experience: “I thought that I had reassembled the laptop as written in the instructions, but I ended up with one screw left over…”

This one is the only example where ている used, and there’s no special explanation given in the grammar point. Is this stative usage, expressing the instructions were written (and remain in the state of being written)? I suppose you would use ている because the past tense isn’t used?
