Although seemingly having a Disques Dreyfus Catalog#, this release must be a Bootleg, as only one copy was released. Jarre destroyed the Master tapes afterwards.

I think the master tapes ARE actually destroyed, however it is highly possible that Jarre kept the corresponding sequences and patterns for his synth and sequencer set-up that he used for this project so he could have reproduced some of these tracks later and only give these newly recorded tracks a slightly different texture in sound and melody!
By Example if you only switch on a Korg MiniPops Drummachine some of those presets sounds similar as a few of his tracks.

I doubt that the actual master tapes were burned as tracks from Music For Supermarkets later appeared on Zoolook and Rendez Vous. This means that either the master tapes were kept OR Jean-Michel borrowed the vinyl from whoever had bought it and re-recorded it.

This release is obviously a <b>BOOTLEG</b> as there was only one copy of this release made, and then the master tapes were destroyed by Jarre. The music was recorded as the soundtrack to an Art exhibition, with the one copy being auctioned off for charity.
The dreyfus web site will verify that this is not an official release.
