Section 7.1 says:

    The AC then contains the ciphertext inside its signed data.  The
    EnvelopedData (id-envelopedData) ContentType is used, and the
    content field will contain the EnvelopedData type.

It should say:

    Within EnvelopedData, the encapuslatedContentInfo identifies the
    content type carried withing the ciphertext.  In this case, the 
    contentType field of encapsulatedContentInfo MUST contain
    id-ct-attrCertEncAttrs, which has the following value:

       attrCertEncAttrs OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::=
             { iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) rsadsi(113549) pkcs(1)
               id-smime(16) id-ct(1) 14 }
