Default Jumping?

So, uh, which one's right?
M2: Everything is true.
GP: Even false things?
M2: Even false things are true.
GP: How can that be?
M2: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

The latter is correct: BM/2 or Jumping/4. Good catch.

(Although, I would not use Basic Move, I'd just use Move after accounting for encumbrance and possibly sprinting and Extra Effort.)

Yeah, this was one of the first real errata we caught (as opposed to silly typos or "I disagree and think it should be like this instead"). The Exploits formula is the correct one.
