CC2592: CC2592 via keep out area confusion

Part Number: CC2592


page 19 in the datasheet for CC2592 (SWRS159) dated Feb 2014 states that there is a via keep out area next to pin one. That indicates to me that I must keep copper away from that area.

But as far as I can see in the reference design files (for example the gerber files found at, there is copper pour all over the keep out area.

As space is very precious in the design I am working on, I need to know whether it is OK or not to place routes or vias in the keep out area.

Thanks in advance for a fast response.

EDIT: as Nathan mentions below, page 18 in the datasheet contains the information needed. The pin 1 indicator is tied to the exposed thermal pad.
