That has not been true for quite a while.

Since RFC 8651 which was published in October 2019, the official version 
is the v3 XML.  The text, HTML, and PDF are mechanically derived from it 
by running it through xml2rfc.  As our tools improve, we might recreate 
the derived versions so they look better or the HTML works better.

This was widely publicised on the IETF list and other places so I'm 
suprised people still aren't aware of it.
