(Did the team explicitly request to add this task to their backlog at Readers-Web-Backlog?)

No, was just trying to select an appropriate tag.

If you were to actually print the page, the links do not appear – here's the output of Chrome's print-to-PDF feature:

The "Printable version" in the sidebar is somewhat unnecessary – if you print directly from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monade, you get the exact same result. It is a relic of the dark, dark times when you couldn't define a different stylesheet for printing. Presumably some print stylesheet somwhere is not defined to be used for the fake "printable version" styles.
