They ask for weird stuff all the time. When we applied for my wife's PMV they asked for proofs that we live together, even though living together is not a requirement and actually the whole point of a PMV is to allow us to live together...

But their request seem clear. Just get your parents to sign a paper saying that yes you really are in a relationship. The case officer is not asking for your parents to tell the whole story of your relationship, but just to testify that yes you really are in a relationship.

We actually spontaneously did such a thing when we applied for the PMV, even without them asking for it. My wife's mother signed such a short letter in front of a lawyer with a certified copy of passport (and they are from China). The goal in our case was to have more documents supporting that our relationship had lasted for more than two years in order to get me a waiver of sponsorship limitation.

You may be overthinking this. If your parents are nice and helpful they will certainly find someone with a sort of official position to put a stamp on a paper in which they say that you are really not faking this relationship as far as they know. It seems this is all the case officer is asking for.
