Subject: rpc.statd(8) and inetd.conf

rpc.statd(8) states that:
     The rpc.statd daemon must NOT be invoked by inetd(8) because the protocol
     assumes that the daemon will run from system start time.  Instead, it
     should be configured in rc.conf(5) to run at system startup.

but inetd.conf has a entry for rcp.statd. 

Is this a typo ? Is the man page incorrect ? Am I missing something ?
