This is not a typo.  In your case you have a /boot partition.  So
/grub/stage1 is on the partition you mounted on /boot.  So the full
pathname is /boot/grub/stage1.  But because GRUB does not have a
single namespace, it is seen as /grub/stage1.

Perhaps it would be better to also include `find /grub/stage1', or
explain how this works when using a /boot partition.  But in order to
say more about this, I would have to read the manual carefully to be
sure if it is wrong or not.
