Question Door fit

I have kept up with all the threads concerning the fit of the doors, which seems to be a bit of a #$%&......

I have to admit to still being a bit confused. Page 45-04 Fig 1 shows the door frame being trimmed parallel to the door so that it fits against the inside of the door. This makes a U-shaped channel which (presumably) the door seal fits in. So far, so good. But 43-3 Fig 1 seems to show the cut at the bottom of the frame being made parallel to the door sill, thus removing the channel leaving a 1" flat flange. Is that correct? Is the idea to remove pressure on the seal at the bottom to help with closing the door?
