You keep cherry picking quotes and ignoring the ones you don't like:
That would be YOU, not me.
"Page 92 under NPC statistics gives 3 main options for creating NPCs. Option 1 is to give them whatever stats they need, which presumes stats. Option 2 is to give them a monster stat block, which presumes stats. Option 3 is to build them like PCs, which presumes stats. All the first paragraph says is that you don't need to roll, and you don't. You have the options 1 and 2 for picking the assumed stats."
Page 89 as I explained in the quote above, just means that you don't need to roll, not that there are no statistics. It's the general overview of the section to follow, and it's true. The NPC statistics section is very clear on the main ways for creating NPCs. All of them involve giving NPCs statistics. With two of them, however you don't need to roll stats. With the third you do unless you are using point buy and array.
