Cumulative PTFs C4244520 instructions confusing

I am currently running OS/400 V5R2. I just ordered the Cumulative PTFs C4244520. The instructions are confusing. Am I to load the Hyper/Group PTFs before the Cumulative PTFs or after?

Here is what the instructions say. "To save time you will be instructed to install the HIPER/Database Group PTFs prior to installing the Cumulative PTFs UNLESS installing as part of an OS/400 release upgrade." Can you please define what they mean by release upgrade?

For some time now, IBM has been shipping HIPER and DATABASE GROUP PTFs with the cumulative PTF package. Always install the cumulative PTFs first and then whatever else came with the shipment.
