Oh jeez, looking at the blame for that section, that text was touched in 1992cf37ee38bac14336c925b65c053984a5c067. It's clear that we *meant* to have the "if it's not auto" rider on *both* contribution calculations, but for some reason accidentally omitted it from the max-content one.

It was present in both in the changelog's quote of the changed text! We just messed up in the actual spec text! Silly of us.

Anyway, thanks for spotting this and bringing it up. It should be clear now that, like for min-content contribution, you'd ignore the specified width in this case and just use the outer max-content size.
