Section 4 says:

   param        =3D/ agent-refer-param

   value        =3D agent-inline-value
        ; Value and parameter MUST match

   value        =3D/ agent-refer-value

        ; No parameters allowed

        ; Only value parameter allowed

   agent-inline-value =3D text-value
        ; Value MUST be a valid vCard object

   agent-refer-value =3D uri
        ; URI MUST refer to image content of given type

It should say:

 ;For name=3D"AGENT"
   param        =3D agent-inline-param

   param        =3D/ agent-refer-param

   value        =3D agent-inline-value
        ; Value and parameter MUST match

   value        =3D/ agent-refer-value
        ; Value and parameter MUST match

   agent-inline-param =3D ""
        ; No parameters allowed

   agent-refer-param =3D "VALUE" "=3D" "uri"
        ; Only value parameter allowed

   agent-inline-value =3D text-value
        ; Value MUST be a valid vCard object

   agent-refer-value =3D uri
        ; URI MUST refer a valid vCard object

Notes:

- Presumably, the comment from img-refer-value was copied, but it was
not modified.
- The correction is consistent with comment for agent-inline-value.
- The purpose of AGENT type is "To specify information about another
person who will act on behalf of the individual or resource associated
with the vCard." (Section 3.5.4)

Section 4 says:

 ;For name=3D"UID"

        ; No parameters allowed

   value        =3D text-value

It should say:

 ;For name="UID"
   param        = "TYPE" "=" (iana-token / x-name)
        ; Only the TYPE parameter is allowed.

   value        = text-value

Notes:

Section 3.6.7 (p. 23) "UID Type Definition" says:

The type can include the type parameter "TYPE" to specify the format
of the identifier. The TYPE parameter value should be an IANA
registered identifier format. The value can also be a non-standard
format.

Notes:

iana-type is not defined in given ABNF, but iana-token is. This is
the only reference to iana-type in the document, so it is likely to be a
typo.

iana-token =3D 1*(ALPHA / DIGIT / "-")
; vCard type or parameter identifier registered with IANA

Notes:

There is an odd "CRLF" at the end of the "snd-inline-value" definition. No other definition for binary-values contains this.
The value definition was corrected to "snd-inline-value" as reported in Errata ID 1546.
I also removed an unmeant closing squared bracket in the VALUE-part of the "snd-inline-param" definition.

It should say:

   ;For name="EMAIL"

 [...]

   email-type   = "INTERNET" / "X400" / iana-token / x-name
        ; Values are case insensitive

Notes:

The email-type should contain a 'x-name' type instead of '"X-" word' for consistancy with tel-type, key-type and adr-type.
Although "word" appears several times, it is not defined at all!
