Because, as we all know, NO ONE governs the FCC!  :-D

It could be worded better:

``U.S. stations must use correct call or suffix for area of operation
as these are used as
a multiplier.''

Of course you must use your correct call!  What they mean (and should
say something like) is that your callsign's district number must
reflect your station's location and if it doesn't, you need to add a
portable identifier.

For those of you that use Logbook Of The World, be sure to request
another certificate for your "new" callsign.
https://lotw.arrl.org/lotw-help/addcertreq/ has the details.
