RFC 7344 did not include bootstrapping, but that was added by RFC 8078.
Sadly it's more like a set of hints rather than an actual protocol...

It's just hand waving. The guys who wrote it know that, but the problem is that there was no consensus on how to bootstrap. It's a hard problem since it's sort of inherent that there's nothing other than a DNSSEC signature that reliably authenticates a DNSSEC record.
