I notice the ready-made page talks about a MCE LED replacement

Q4 2022 UPDATE: We are retiring the venerable Cree MCE LED and would like to introduce you to our newest offering with the highest CRI available today (coming soon): 3x3 Array, Nichia E17A, 98 CRI with a custom 3D printed, metalized reflector. See the "background" section for more details.

No details in the background yet. Has any light use that configuration?

I had a dual channel Noctigon KR4 with 2x cool and 2x warm E17A. Absolutely beautiful tints and CRI on both. The only trade off was slightly lower output relative to the other options and a strange Vf that meant it couldn't be mixed with other LEDs.

if 3 * 3, then it turns out 9 pieces, something like such a board?

It will definitely be a flooder

Looks like the 3x3 Nichia E17A didn't make the cut.
Q2 2023 UPDATE: We are retiring the venerable Cree MCE LED and would like to introduce you to our current Maker's Choice LED, the Nichia 519A 4000K 95+ CRI @ 750 lumens (approx). The 519A is the "best looking" single die LED we've ever tested because it features a high "R9" for accurate red hues.
The spec say Nichia 519A Neutral White (4500K) @ 90+ CRI (High R9) but the product overview says 4000K. Is 4500k coming back?
