Section header block says:

Updates: 2474, 2401, 793

It should say:

Updates: 2474, 2401, 2003, 793


RFC 3168 updates RFC 2003 but does not indicate this in its header block.

Specifically, Section 9 of RFC 3168 defines processing of the ECN field for Encapsulated Packets. This updates RFC 2003, which specified "IP Encapsulation within IP" at a time before the ECN field was defined.
