It's right. The example in the manual is for Gromos force fields. You should
look at the actual .rtp files for the AMBER parameter set you're trying to use.
Suffice it to say that different atom orders are supported, because the
Gromacs machinery (specifically pdb2gmx) knows how to deal with lots of stuff
based on bonded geometry.
