The problem is once it's digitally out there, even though it's way cheaper(zero cost basically) for them to sell, they'll sell less.



"Sell less"?  Am I correct they are selling zero now?  If so, scanning the manual to digital doesn't sound like much of a sales/marketing risk.  Even if they actually gave it away for free with a link on their website it would provide more sales/marketing value as 'good will' than the zero sales return their asset is providing now.

It seems to me that whether you sell in print or digital, the pirating risk is the same.  Print copies can be scanned by anyone, same as copying digital files.

There could be a reasonable motive to intentionally stop circulation of the book.  If there is a decision to stop commercially supporting the (obsolete) Dellorto product, there is no reason to provide a technical resource perpetuating support.

I'm not going to second-guess CB.  They're the best at what they do.  I can say for fact; I loved the heck out of my Tomlinson Dellorto book!
