Condition 2(b) adds the qualification "work that you distribute or publish". The phrasing might be a bit awkward, but the meaning is clear. Language cleanup was one of the reasons for GPLv3, of course.

How do you cause the event ". . . the modified files to carry prominent notices" when it is a precondition to permission to "You may modify your copies. . ."?

The condition is a limitation on what the altered files may look like. It is nonsensical to assume that copyright infringement occurs due to the intermediate steps involved in producing a permitted alteration.

Do you have the slightest idea what you are blathering about? I don't.

For example, no publisher's contract with an author explicitly authorizes the publisher to create intermediate copies for the process of producing a book, such as printing plates or digital copies. But an author suing for infringement on those grounds would get laughed out of court, not least for your favorite "promissory estoppel".
