coil splitting 3 humbuckers with 3 dpdt switches

i have a wiring question.I'm wiring my radius 540 r i am using the dimarzio protrack in the neck and middle and a fred in the bridge .i routed the body for a 5 way switch . i wanna utilize the 3 mini toggle switch holes in the body by using each switch the split a pickup.

i found a diagram at that does what i want it to but it says i need 3 on on on switches. my question is can i just use on on switches? why do they need to be 3 position? since im only using them to coil split .

any info appreciated

You only need on/on. The on/on/on is probably for split/series/parallel.
