Yes. This is a good point. Those verses are about how to practice Ānāpānasati/Satipaṭṭhāna Bhāvanā to get rid of bad habits that lead to perpetuating the rebirth process.

I just re-wrote one of those posts in the section mentioned below:
How Habits are Formed and Broken – A Scientific View

It is one in a series of old posts:
9. Key to Ānapānasati – How to Change Habits and Character (Gati)

Please comment on any of those posts. I will revise them as needed.
