All bullets have to be true, so this is in combination with the 2nd.
(https://raw.githack.com/w3c/wcag/wcag22-focus-visible-enhanced/understanding/22/focus-visible-enhanced.html )

I.e. the change of contrast has to be there (2nd bullet). *Then* it has to contrast with its adjacent colors *or* be thicker.

No, the note is for the 2nd bullet, although it hasn't changed since the third was added. Perhaps we need to make the note more specifically for the 2nd bullet then?

"E.g. Note: A focus indicator that is larger than the minimum area may have parts that do not meet the 3:1 focus contrast requirement, as long as an area equal to the minimum does meet the contrast ratio."
