I do not get this regulation, it states fairly clearly on the INS FAQ attached below that to get this benefit, all that needs to have occur is that you file your labor certification 365 days before the six year anniversary.

However I get told from numerous sources, that really I need to have processed my I140 as well which is conditional on my labor certification being approved.

What is going on?

This is a clear example of an INS FAQ not being precise enough. You can read the
actual provision of the law at http://shusterman.com/s2045txt.html, section
106(a) and (b).

Your I-140 need only be filed; it does not have to be approved for you to be eligible
for H-1B extension beyond 6 years.
