For Monday, January 12, shouldn't the Benedictus and Magnificat antiphons be from Day VI, on pp. 136* and 139*?

Counting from Epiphany on Jan. 6, Jan. 7 was Day II, Jan. 8 was Day III, Jan. 9 was Day IV, Jan. 10 would be Day V but has the office of the BVM on Saturday, Jan. 11 is the Sunday (mentioned in the rubrics on p. 135*), and Jan. 12 would be Day VI. Or is there some other rubric about how the Office of the BVM on Saturday affects these antiphons?
