Yes, that's right, I'm the author of both the dictionary and Wikipedia! Tremble before my awesome powers!

Listen, I don't know what the conventional understanding is of "manual labor." I'm sorry you feel offended that a waiter would intrude on the term. But it doesn't seem obvious to me that picking up and carrying trays of food back and forth from a kitchen all day isn't manual labor.
