Question 2008 TSB clutch n syncro test question

I was doing the test the TSB asks to do to check the clutch and syncros even though I've had the TSB done.

Starting the car and slightly trying to put it in gear without the clutch pressed.
Everything was fine...no grinding and they did not go in gear.
The TSB says to put your ebrake on but I did not and had no brake pedal pressed

I did notice one thing.
I did not have the break NOR the ebrake on.
When I would slightly try to put it in gear the car would roll forward just a tad.
Then roll back in place.
Is this normal since I had no brakes on?
The TSB says something is wrong if the car is fully in gear and clutch depressed without brakes and it creeps forward.
Doesn't depressed mean clutch pedal is pressed in?
I was not pressing the clutch as I said when it did this.

If I press the clutch in I have never noticed it trying to ooch forward like the TSB says as a warning sign.

Like I said the clutch was not pushed in, no breaks applied.
Just slightly trying to push the gear shift in gear without the clutch VERY gently.

I just want to ask to see if since it did that something is wrong or not.
Everything seems to be working fine and they replaced the old clutch system completely about a yr ago with the 2010 parts, flywheel and all.
Thanks for the help
