Both of my FP appointment letters (I had to do FP twice, because of an over a year FBI Name Check delay after the first FP) also gave me a 3-months window after the scheduled appointment date and said that if I miss the main FP appointment, I could come on any Wednesday within that 3-months window.

My understanding is that this was the standard USCIS practice at the time.
It is possible (and even likely) that at some point since then the USCIS procedures have changed and now they give a firm date for an FP appointment, without specifying a three-months window after it.
It'd be interesting if more people with recent FP letters could comment here.
