Section 3.3.10. says:

       weekday     = "SU" / "MO" / "TU" / "WE" / "TH" / "FR" / "SA"
       ;Corresponding to SUNDAY, MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY,
       ;FRIDAY, and SATURDAY days of the week.

It should say:

       weekday     = "MO" / "TU" / "WE" / "TH" / "FR" / "SA" / "SU"
       ;Corresponding to MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY,
       ;SATURDAY, and SUNDAY days of the week.

Notes:

It is worldwide accepted that a working business week begins with
a monday in all business related activities (stock exchange etc. etc).

This isn't an error in the document. Regardless of your opinion of whether the week should begin on Sunday, Monday, or Thursday, ABNF does not create any particular ordering. Implementations are always free to order them as they please.
