Official Vital Record Transcriptions

I recently requested several vital records from state offices and county clerks:
Marriage Record (1963), Bernalillo County, New Mexico - County Clerk
Marriage Record (1895), Grayson County, Texas - County Clerk
Death Certificate (1961), Tarrant County, Texas
Death Certificate (1967), Hinsdale County, Colorado - State Registrar

What I received appears to be an electronic transcriptions overlaid on the original document. I am concerned about this practice losing clues and introducing errors in my documentation efforts.

Is anyone else receiving transcriptions instead of copies of original documents?

Does anyone know why this might be happening?

Is there a polite way to ask an official entity for an exact copy of the original?

Thank you.

Doubtful anyone on these boards can answer in an official capacity. Why not just ask someone at the offices that provided the documents?
