From what you've described, I don't think it'll be relevant.  You should be 
able to safely ignore that.  I'm running with 3 Red IP Addresses.  I'm just 
aliasing them, and I THINK that's all you're after too.  Chances are the docs 
are just old.  Nobody likes doing doc work...  :)

You could set it up and try a scheduled test of it though, to be sure.

If you do end up needing to do manual edits, PERSONALLY, I usually add them 
to /etc/rc.d/rc.local, and I know that's the recommended way (It's copied 
during backups, and upgrades).  And for routing, it shouldn't really matter 
when they are added.  If you need to edit the firewall scripts themselves, 
they should be in rc.d also (as I remember), and with them, ordering WILL
