A DIFFERENT issue on LM

Below are the Monte Carlo rules on LM. I was surprised to see that an illegal move can be pointed out and corrected after a double or even after a take. Is that how it really works, or is this a technical defect in the written rule?
3. ILLEGAL MOVES. 1. If an illegal move is noticed before the opponent has rolled his dice it must be corrected. Only the two players and tournament officials are allowed to point out an illegal move. 2. Undoing of illegal moves in matches played without the use of game clock. Demands for undoing are made by presenting the opponent with the fact. Once the opponent has accepted the fact the dice must be replaced on the board showing the correct value and the move must be remade. 3. Undoing of illegal moves in matches played with a game clock. Demands for undoing are made by stopping the game clock and presenting the opponent with the fact. Once the opponent has accepted the fact, the opponent’s time must be restarted on the game clock. When the delay time has run out, the opponent may make a legal move. 4. Repeated illegal moves may result in a warning. If the player continues to make illegal moves, penalty points may be awarded.
