This patch is definitely woven, but you could accomplish something similar using dye sublimation. It's just a matter of finding the shape you want in a polyester blank patch without a merrowed edge.
Yes, it looks like it's woven to me too, but it's a bit strange to me when it's woven why they cut this shape with a laser.
Is the weaving machine not making the desired shape?

Very inefficient to weave one patch at a time. They are woven on large looms many feet wide. Multiple patches are printed at once (ganged) and then cut, just like they do vinyl labels.
