I can't see pg 61 (only goes up to pg 45 or so). But the way I've usually seen 5 stroke rolls notated is 4 1/32 notes and an 1/8 which equals 2 1/8s (plus 6 1/8s equals 8 1/8s which is one measure of 4/4).

The 5-stroke rolls on p.61, ex. 9-16 have a 16th note pulsation. The rhythm on ex. 9 is: 1e& 2-& 3-& 4-&, with buzzes or doubles on "1-e". The rhythm of ex. 10 is 1-&a 2-& 3& 4&, and so on.

The roll plus the release is three strokes, as you say, but the first two are doubles (or multiple bounces). The rhythm for the doubles in this case is 32nd notes; the rhythm for the multiple bounces is indeterminate, but again the underlying pulsation is 16th notes. Hope that helps...
