'96 Discovery I, 4.0 petrol engine

I am fitting new piston rings into the block .
The manual says "butt the spacer ends together and do not overlap"
Right !! The ones I took out were overlapped one link and when i put them in without an overlap the spacer bulges a good bit out of the piston groove.

Does the oil control ring spacer overlap or butt together?

I was watching a tutorial on Youtube and it said to NOT overlap the spacer.
It was not "Land Rover" specific but I am going to take the advice.
