in the lesson for attendre the two examples are the same, the first should be about waiting.
Look at these two sentences:
Ils attendent son arrivée d'une minute à l'autre.
They're expecting him to arrive any minute now.[Lit. They're expecting his arrival.]
they're simply stating they're expecting his arrival, if anything they're actually happy he's coming.
Ils s'attendent à son arrivée d'une minute à l'autre.
They're expecting him to arrive any minute now.[Lit. They're expecting his arrival
This question relates to:French lesson "Attendre quelqu'un vs s'attendre à quelque chose = to wait vs to expect"
