Section 5.10. says:

All RSA signatures must be generated and verified according to
   Section 7.2 of [RFC8017].

It should say:

All RSA signatures must be generated and verified according to
   Section 8.2 of [RFC8017].

Notes:

Section 7.2 of RFC 8017 describes the RSAES-PKCS1-v1_5 encryption scheme. Section 8.2 of RFC 8017 describes the RSASSA-PKCS1-v1_5 signature scheme. The original text contradicts the natural expectation and is probably wrong. If it was intended, there should have been a thorough explanation (like in the well-known case of IKEv1 using the encryption scheme for signing).
