LOL - Whining about documentation is what programmers do - its driven by the
"fact" that the docs and the implementation are "never" in sync, except on
something that is either trivial, or as old as the hills...

And it does not matter if the software is free and open source, or bought at
great expense - there are always these differences - sometimes niggly, and often
major - it sometimes looks as if the docs were a statement of intent, with the
implementation taking a left turn at the first crossroads.
