Section 4.2 says:

   The "addr-type" portion MUST be an IANA-registered electronic mail
   address-type (as defined in [3]), while the "xtext" portion contains
   an encoded representation of the original recipient address using the

It should say:

   The "addr-type" portion MUST be an IANA-registered electronic mail
   address-type (as defined in [3]), while the "xtext" portion contains
   an encoded representation of the original recipient address using the
   rules in section 4 of this document.  The entire ORCPT parameter MAY
                    ^
   be up to 500 characters in length.

Notes:

xtext encoding is described in Section 4, not in Section 5
