Yes, the installation instructions are correct. The wiring from your old oven isn't relevant.
Your query is a little confusing though. The new oven should have a power cable attached to it for connection to the mains supply. This should be on a separate circuit from your sockets and connected to an isolator switch. The wires in the power cable are colour coded to ensure that they are correctly polarised when connecting to the mains supply. I'm assuming you're in the UK as you list a GB model number, therefore, it should have a BROWN wire for LIVE, BLUE for NEUTRAL and GREEN/YELLOW for EARTH.
If your house wiring uses the old red (live) and black (neutral) colour coding, then you just need to ensure that the brown (live) wire from the oven lead is connected where the red wire from the supply is terminated. The blue (neutral) wire should be connected where the black wire is terminated and the green/yellow (earth) wire should be connected where the green wire is terminated.
Internally, the oven probably uses red cable for live and black for neutal, but you really shouldn't need to be doing anything with the internal wiring to install the oven.
You say you are having it fitted. Any competent installer would know (or check) the correct wiring order even if the instructions were missing. If you are installing it yourself, be sure are certain you understand what to do before attempting this and double-check the power for the oven circuit is off before you start.
Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.
