I think the comment is saying that pg_resetwal will rewrite the
pg_control with a WAL level of minimal and that's the issue and why
the server needs to be brought up with a higher WAL level temporarily,
so that pg_control gets updated, for the new cluster.
Of course, before pg_upgrade is run, the old cluster would need to be up
and running with a wal_level higher than minimal in order to have
replicas in the first place, but what we're really talking about here is
the new, upgraded, cluster.
I do think the doc could probably say replica 'or higher'.
