In Reformed Courier-Spiel castling is defined so as to recover the same positions as in standard modern chess: the King moves to the square on the c-column or k-column and the Rook jumps over it (to the d- or j-columns).

Since Chess has no k or j column, this would not be recovering the same position as in standard modern chess. You could say that the King moves four spaces when castling, which places it in the same relative position to the edge it has moved towards as it has when castling in Chess.
