Section 1.10 says:

This format is applicable for non-skippable extensions that carry
information of more that 256 bytes.
.
.
.
Since the Length field is 16 bits wide, the extension data can exceed
256 bytes in length.

It should say:

This format is applicable for non-skippable extensions that carry
information of more that 254 bytes.
.
.
.
Since the Length field is 16 bits wide, the extension data can exceed
254 bytes in length.
