The torque spec in the manual for the cylinder head bolts seems very low, at 16 ft-lb (2.2 m-kg). Is this a misprint?

My manual shows 16 ft/lbs for the 4 main bolts, and 14 ft/lbs for the 2 side bolts. The tightening sequence order numbers are embossed on the cylinder head itself. I agree, they do seem low, but---
