Variation used for True bearing

I have a question from Module 11, Leeway and Current.
Why, when plotting the Example of sailing out of Port Fitzroy, do you only apply a 6 deg Variation to the Magnetic bearing (67 deg) to obtain the true bearing (61 deg) when the Variation shown on the Compass Rose on Chart 3 is 7’25”W? Am I missing something really simple here?
