Well at least not by me, moments after doing a release.

Right, now I understand the confusion; buildout.cfg files created by
earlier versions of grokproject used to have an extends directive
pointing to http://grok.zope.org/releaseinfo/grok-x.x.cfg.

Merely updating the directive to point to the lastest release and
running bin/buildout again would then have been enough for upgrade

But grokproject has changed; it downloads the versions file now instead.
So yes, I guess your procedure is correct here.

In that sense claiming the upgrade instructions are the same as the
former release and the the release before that are a mistake.
