No, it says "now contains", ie those are the post-removal statistics.

Yeah --- so almost half the space in the index is free space (more than
half according to the later report).  Possibly you should be vacuuming
this table a bit more often...

Because it had to do two passes of row removal, due to not having enough
vacuum_mem to remember all the dead rows at once.
