I think the following line below figure 2 is the important one:
	"As with adaptive icons, one-third of the foreground is masked (3)."

Hinting at the #3 in the figure, which is the area outside the circle. Taking a closer look at the current splash screen, one will see that the drawable is masked in a circular shape. Depending on how it is scaling, the circular mask will be easier or harder to spot.

That probably explains why it did look quite different on your phone than on mine regarding how large and cutoff it appeared, depending on how they are set up regarding the px to dp (device independent pixel) conversion.
