Why are there sausages with ellipses with random degree? [Lesson 2]

I know the title may be confusing, but let me explain.
In the homework for lesson 2 "Organic forms with contour lines" its explain to us about the degree shift of an ellipse (which was also explained in lesson 1).
to put it short, it tells us that depending on the angle the viewer is seeing, we should see the degree of the ellipse getting wider or narrower, like it explains in the page, a sausage that we are seeing in front of us, at dead center we should be able to see an ellipse that looks like an edge ( basically because its at 0 degree), and the following ellipses should get wider at the ends, as explained here:
What i don't understand, is that, if this is true, then why in the sausages example it looks like the majority of the ellipses are getting wider and wider with no reason at all? shouldn't they have a point where ellipses when narrower?
I mean, just look at this image,
Bottom-left and top-right are an example of this, why in these two particular sausages, ALL the ellipses seems to be wide? isn't this a contradiction to the degree shift?
this has gotten me so confused, because i don't know if i am missing something here, why are the ellipses on the example mostly wide? like, they don't even get narrower at some point.
Im sorry if this is poorly written, but english is not my main languague, thanks!.
