Section 2 says:

         * If tunnel mode is being used, then the IPsec implementation
           can add Traffic Flow Confidentiality (TFC) padding (see
           Section 2.4)  after the Payload Data and before the Padding
           (0-255 bytes) field.

It should say:

         * If tunnel mode is being used, then the IPsec implementation
           can add Traffic Flow Confidentiality (TFC) padding (see
           Section 2.7)  after the Payload Data and before the Padding
           (0-255 bytes) field.

Notes:

Section 2.4 refers to padding for Encryption. It is section 2.7 which refers to Traffic Flow Confidentiality (TFC) Padding
