It is recognised correctly.

There is no P element open at that stage.

To quote another part of the error message: 
        "or by an implicitly closed element"

As the end tag for a P element is optional in HTML 4.x and block
elements such as TABLE are not allowed inside a P element, <p><table>
means the same as <p></p><table>.
