I think there may be some confusion here on 'upper' and 'lower' in this context. I believe that 'upper' refers to the four hex head bolts that secure the caps to the risers and clamp the handlebars in place, while the 'lower' is the spec for the nuts under the triple clamp that threads onto the riser studs and - recall notwithstanding - secures the risers to the upper triple clamp from below.

the workshop manual states:
"First, tighten the bolts on the front side of the upper handlebar holder, and then on the rear side."
So this means tighten the forward bolts down to it stops (16 ft lbs) and then the rearward (closest to you) to 16 ft lbs - there will be a gap.  This is how they are from new.
