p363 of the spec (17.6.5) and p499 of HFE where it lists the methods that might be running in "unspecified transaction context". It doesn't have anything from Entity Bean yet on p253 of the spec (22.214.171.124) it says "ejbActivate(), ejbPassivate() (among couple of other methods) will run in unspecified transaction context"
why doesn't 17.6.5 talk about the Entity bean methods ?

I wouldn't read too much into that, the list is preceeded by:
This includes the following cases:
So this list is not meant to be complete; it probably just represents the scenarios that the specification writers felt were the most confusing - i.e. people may be lead to believe that these scenarios may in fact have a specific transaction context when they in fact do not. Which entity bean methods run in an "unspecified transaction context" is documented sufficiently elsewhere. There is already sufficient repetition in the specification to make it as long as it is.
They weren't very bright, but they were very, very big. Ad contrast:
