Agreed. Here’s the replacement:

  <p>If directional information is contained in markup that will be
  parsed as such by the consumer (for example, <code class="kw"
  translate="no">dir=rtl</code> in HTML),  the producer  of the string
  needs to understand that markup in order to set or not set an RLM/LRM
  character as appropriate. If the producer always adds RLM/LRM to the
  start of such strings, the consumer is expected to know that. If the
  producer relies instead on the markup being understood, the consumer
  is expected to understand the markup.</p>

In 4.4, we find "if it relies instead on the markup…".
It is not clear what is referenced by "it". The nearest term is the consumer, but the intended reference probably is the producer, which is mentioned further above.
