You are very observant to notice this. You're right, all the translations I 
checked
construe it as a question, and the Greek texts of Westcott/Hort, Fodges, and
Robinsom/Pierpont punctuate it as a question. Only NA27/UBS3 has it as
a statement, followed by Zondervan's RGNT. NA 27/UBS3 does not even have
a note. Even the Modern Greek, though carrying no more evidentiary weight than
any other translation, construes it as a question: QELEIS ESU NA MH FOBASAI
THN EXOUSIA;
-----------------------------
NA 25 has it as a question with a note saying that B. Weiss did not mark a 
question.
Why NA27 changed is difficult to know, since it was a poor decision.
