The triadic description of general relativity in three dimensions is known to be a BF theory. Diffeomorphisms, as symmetries, are easily recovered on-shell from the symmetries of BF theory. This note describes an explicit off-shell BV symplectomorphism between the BV versions of the two theories, each endowed with their natural symmetries.
