Question E/S Switch on 190e Tranny.Is Mr Haynes wrong?

I'm confused.

The Haynes manual says :

In E (Economy), the vehicle will move away from standstill in 2nd gear with light throttle or 1st gear with full throttle. In S (Standard), the vehicle will always move away from standstill in 2nd gear and gearchange points will occur at lower driving speeds...

Is this explanation flawed?

I thought that in S (Sport), the car can start from 1st gear at full throttle and the gearchange points occur at higher rpm; and that the reverse is true for E (Economy) plus the car can only start from 2nd gear?

What's up with the Haynes expalanation???
