I got a fix-it ticket (correctable traffic citation) for a brake light and was told to go to any police station after I fixed it to have it signed off.
All the police stations were closed, but while driving I saw a police car parked in the lot of a grocery store, so I drove in there, walked up to the officer and asked him to sign it off for me, which he did.

Is this all right as well? It's just that the website says this

Any law enforcement officer can certify a qualified violation as corrected using the back side of your citation, with the exceptions noted below. Do not stop an officer on any roadway for certification. You may go to any law enforcement office during regular business hours.
I didn't stop the officer on the road, he was already parked in a lot...So should it still be fine?

I know this seems like an incredibly stupid question but it's my first time dealing with this and I know if you're careless about such things, it can come back and bite you.

It doesn't matter. It probably says that because they would rather have cops on the street doing more important things and/or because some stations will charge you to sign it off and a cop on the street can't do that.
