It depends on your choice to forward a port.

If your router supports UPnP, you can enable UPnP in µT and define a fixed port (or not, i.e. random at each start). In this case, you don't need to add a manual portforwarding rule in the router, µT will do it for you.

But, if your router doesn't support UPnP (or it's broken/bad implemented), disable both UPnP/NAT-PMP and random port, then define a port number (>10000) then forward this port in your router by following the website.

The website says that because all the guides they provide are for manual portforwarding, like that, they are sure the port is forwarded correctly. ;)

But it's not an obligation to forward manually if your router supports UPnP.

Check the manufacturer website, they have surely a user manual online.
