There are updates (corrections) to the various scores from time to time and they are re-uploaded so you might want to check for a more current version. I agree; there are a few instances where the score doesn't match the example. This isn't the only one.
As to damping with the left hand fingers, it mostly consists of tilting the LH finger over to rest on the string physically below it when playing descending
notes so it's not obvious that this is happening. On ascending
notes, either the same string is plucked or the rest stroke automatically stops the string physically above it.
As long as the damping is correct, and the timing and tone are right, I consider the fingering as suggestions to be followed but not slavishly. They are usually there to help, not hinder.
