Tartine Whole Wheat recipe skips a step!!?

Am I missing something or has anyone else noticed that the Tartine recipe for the whole wheat version of the country loaf (on page 114) skips step 4 which is adding 20g of salt and 200g water. The recipe clearly states (after the the first 40 to 60 min. resting period after mixing the levan, water and flour) to go to step 5 through 9. However, the ingredients list for whole wheat includes 20g of salt. If you were to follow the recipe the salt would never get added. Would love to get someone elses opinion on this.

Its 20 g of salt and 50g of warm water after the rest.
