Engine Break-in

Prior to delivery, I've been reading the manuals for the 2017 Pacifica. The section on engine break-in doesn't make sense to me. I know they've been using the same language for years in all their vehicles.

It's the section that says; "Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km). After the initial 60 miles (100 km), speeds up to 50 or 55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable."

Shouldn't it say, "During the initial 60 miles..."? Wouldn't you want to limit the speed during the first 60 miles, rather than after?

What am I missing here? Can someone enlighten me?

Yeah, as I recall when you buy a sports car they say "drive it for 500 miles like it's a minivan, then driver er like you stole er". Haha
