Adoptive Parents on Birth Cert?

I recently found the CA Birth Records in the Rootsweb Database. First, I was surprised to see the release of birth records up to 1995 - I thought those had a 72 or 75 year law on them.

Secondly - my question: Could adoptive parents get their names on the child's birth certificate or record 5 - 9 years after the child was born? Would a birth record ordered show what was on the Birth Record database or would it show the birth parents names? It appears that, in at least 3 cases, the adoptive parents had the birth record changed (although why, I do not know). I have no background in CA law and would appreciate some help on this.
