To answer your question – I’m sure Kelly knows the differences between the lifts and uses them appropriately depending on the training goals. The issue you’re bringing up is in regards to the text explanation – which I agree is not very good. The text doesn’t explicitly differentiate (for the novice) between movement, goal and skill characteristics between each of the variations.
I hope that future versions of the book address this point.
