Ribbon, tabs and a mistake

The 2002 Roman Missal, showing a ribbon, tabs and and a full page. It is page 591, which seems to have an error near the bottom of the page. Before the Sanctus is written what appears to be the remains of a rubric "Aliae melodiae in Graduali romano inveniuntur". It means something like "Another melody in the Roman Graduale may be used". But it is not printed as a rubric, in red, but in black. This would mean it would be sung as part of the Eucharistic Prayer. In this case faithfully following the liturgical book means not exactly as printed.
