Asus Zenfone 8 android 12 TIP necessary?

Hi in the instructions I read:
Tip: Before installing /e/OS on the ASUS ZenFone 8 sake for the first time, install the latest stock OS version 11 build on the device

Is this necessary ?
it looks like I have an A12 Version WW-31.1010.0410.72 that I can’t downgrade in any case it doesn’t work according to the official instructions of Asus

I’m scared doing something wrong

Regain your privacy! Adopt /e/ the unGoogled mobile OS and online servicesphone

Android is very inclined to include #anti-rollback which tries to prevent us from “going back”. All /e/ instructions are based on only installing on the latest manufacture’s ROM at the same Android version. (Older phones, the advice is the very latest ROM available, when only older Android versions were supported.)

It would be unwise to install /e/ version 11 on an Android 12 device.
