Section 10.5 says:

When receiving an Hello Packet from a neighbor on a broadcast,
Point-to-MultiPoint or NBMA network, set the neighbor
structure's Neighbor ID equal to the Router ID found in the
packet's OSPF header. For these network types, the neighbor
structure's Router Priority field, Neighbor's Designated Router
field, and Neighbor's Backup Designated Router field are also
set equal to the corresponding fields found in the received
Hello Packet; changes in these fields should be noted for
possible use in the steps below. When receiving an Hello on a
point-to-point network (but not on a virtual link) set the
neighbor structure's Neighbor IP address to the packet's IP
source address.

It should say:

When receiving an Hello Packet from a neighbor on a broadcast,
Point-to-MultiPoint or NBMA network, set the neighbor
structure's Neighbor ID equal to the Router ID found in the
packet's OSPF header. For broadcast and NBMA network types, the neighbor
structure's Router Priority field, Neighbor's Designated Router
field, and Neighbor's Backup Designated Router field are also
set equal to the corresponding fields found in the received
Hello Packet; changes in these fields should be noted for
possible use in the steps below. When receiving an Hello on a
point-to-point network (but not on a virtual link) set the
neighbor structure's Neighbor IP address to the packet's IP
source address.

Notes:

This is unnecessary in case of Point-to-MultiPoint network type to hold neighbor's Router Priority, DR, and BDR values.
