This diagram has one minor flaw: the Pawns on the e- and f-file only have a double-push when they are the original ones. Since the diagram doesn't enforce rules, this doesn't have to stop you playing these moves, in the unlikely case that the situation ever occurs. The AI would just never play them itself.
