Am I wrong in my understanding that virtually any iBGP session is 'complex' in terms of this document?

E. g. an MP-BGP session between an MPLS PE and route reflectors, is it 'complex'?

As I see no other special clause in the document to treat iBGP, as of my understanding, all iBGP is 'complex' so no roles needed.

Another kind of 'complex' peering might be some sort of 'non-Internet eBGP': leaf-spine eBGP fabrics for example. Or any VPN eBGP: inter-provider option C, eBGP over IPSec in the enterprise between hub site and branches etc etc.
