Local issue?

The next stamps of Austria with overprint 'SHS SLOVENIJA 29 /x 1918' are a mystery to me:

I've been told that this is an unofficial local  issue, made in 1918 in the Slovenian city of Celje?

The imperforated stamps were newspaper stamps of Bosnia, later perforated stamps were used as postage stamps in Yugoslavia.
