Unpacked scoop

Ive been feeding LO formula for a week and I’m still getting the hang on how to properly make a bottle. I’ve been second guessing myself when I’m scooping the formula. I usually get a big scoop of formula and then level it off with my finger or a knife. I’m feeding LO similac and instructions say unpacked scoop. Is this considered an unpacked scoop even with the air pockets?
