Yes, I read that paragraph.  However, it is not clear to me what it meant.  Your wording is more explicit.

Hi Robie,

have you read this document from the WSJT-X web site:

Note in particular "Detailed Instructions for Hounds" paragraph 14. So
after three attempts to copy an RR73 message it is time to reset and
start again. There's no harm in trying a couple more, particularly if
you think the Fox may not be copying your R+report message. The Fox will
make three attempts to sign off with you but that may take more than
three T/R cycles if he doesn't copy you every time.
