I guess that is the RPM range where the engine is putting out maximum power.

The peak torque maybe at 4,000 but you still want to shift at or over redline because it effects where you begin the next gear. If you shifted at 4,000 you will be going into the next gear WAY below the range that gives any horsepower at all.
