I don't understand the NRSV footnote to be making such a claim.
I read it as saying something like: "We have made a choice to
follow a tradition which starts a new chapter at this point. We recognise
that other translators make a different choice. If you - dear reader -
should happen to come across translations which differ from ours in this
respect, just remember that chapter and verse numbers are a later convention
not to be found in the extant Hebrew documents."
I guess they thought it was easier to say:
"Ch 4.1-6 are Ch 3.19-24 in Heb"
