I think that has to do with the earlier build cars where the initial programming or the previous update didn't actually enable the oil life monitor to alert the driver and the latest update is supposed to, but it needs to be reset first even though it won't coincide with an oil change as apart of the tsb, so the next service would have to be performed normally without it. Then it would need to be reset again at that time.
