Because the force size list goes:
... platoon, company, battalion, brigade, division, corps ...
I guess because regiment means so many different things ;)
In this case, FBB is a "brigade" but is organised like a small Division, with subordinate Regiments* and other supports.. The Regiments are 'groups of battalions' without major supporting arms - perhaps the FBB should be re-designated as a divisional formation. I don't think it was ever subordinated directly to a division, but acted independently, so this shouldn't break anything?
*Actually looking at the formation list, it seems to treated as a giant Regt HQ with 5 Bn plus artillery, directly attached.
The FG Bde is more what I had in mind originally, which does have two regimental HQ attached, and uses the same HQ as the FBB
