I would say you are right that a pdb begins with a spring, but that is not
the same as a disassemble. A spring is a jump from one foot on to
the other foot, whereas a disassemble is a jump which begins with
both feet on the floor.

To do a pdb from a standing start, you must prepare by lifting one foot
clear of the floor so that you can spring on to it.

The debatable point is whether you just let the foot hang there
somewhere or if you extend it towards 4th intermediate. This
seems to be down the preference of each teacher and probably
depends how they themselves were originally taught.
