I have a question about the recipe "Pan de Muerto (Day of the Dead Bread)" from Erin McDowell. Is this recipe missing butter?

Nancy is a trusted home cook.
A similar recipe for Pan de Muerto uses 1/2 cup butter to 4 cups flour.
SInce the McDowell recipe uses 3 cups flour, use approx 3 oz butter.
Juliette, commenting on the article which introduced this recipe, guesses the omission of butter by Erin McDowell is deliberate.
