instructions on leaving the slip (4)... possible misprint?

In (4) Part (c)... when the current is coming from the bow:
In the initial reversing (part (a): why not turn the wheel to starboard a little bit to starboard while in reverse, won't that help a little swing the bow out to port (not as much as a steerable outboard of course)?
In part (b when you motor out on the diagonal and then steer to starboard to straighten out parallel to the slip. "Remember the rear of the boat will swing back towards the dock if you turn the wheel" <-- is this statement in the text accurate? won't the the stern will swing out to port as you turn to starboard since you are going forward?
