To add to Dave Baldwin's very pertinent response, just a general point:

As far as I'm aware, no LaserJet printer offers true edge-to-edge printing, for the reasons given in that response - possible printer contamination & subsequent damage.

i think that this applies to cut-sheet laser printers from most (and probably all) other manufacturers.

I have a vague recollection of some of the extremely large laser printers (perhaps from Xerox?) offering edge-to-edge a couple of decades ago, but I'm not sure about this.

It's odd that the manual states that you should "never print directly to the edge of the paper". I would assume the the hardware will prevent you from doing that.

@DansDadUK I have the same recollection. The Phaser 5500 did it (see this document), but my memory also adds that the printer specifications said that "print quality outside the normal margins is not guaranteed"

Apparently the printer I got the manual text from will handle a variety of paper widths.  I didn't see anything relating to printing to the edge of the largest paper size.

Thinking about it some more, I suppose they mean that you should not attempt to tell the printer the installed paper is larger than it actually is, to force printing to the edge. For example, install A3 paper but tell the printer it's 12" x 18". Especially if you set the paper guides to the larger size it may not notice a relatively minor discrepancy.
