This is the win condition. Once you have more plunder than locations, you win. No other requirement is needed, and it is impossible to win any other way since no villain is ever in a location deck.
I suppose we could FAQ this, but it seems unnecessary to me. The wording is "To win, do this." So do that and you win.
Fwiw, I just played this scenario with my kids, and we were confused enough about how we were supposed to handle the villain and closing requirements that I came here to the boards to seek aid, and was surprised not to see a FAQ for it. I then had to track down this thread. Based on my admittedly individual experience, a FAQ would be helpful.
