So the chart at the is the approximation and what's below is the more precise rule. I don't read it as a "contradiction". Where I have problems is when 3.4 isn't mentioned at all.
Perhaps you should look at that page again. It says "3 ounce or smaller." 3.4 ounces is not smaller, so it won't fly. Below it then states "3.4 ounce bottle or less." Inconsistency on the same page.
