You're right but that's fine and the comment's still doing its job.
Either the comment is wrong, or the code is. It doesn't really matter which one, It needs to be investigated and fixed.

Otherwise you could say that writing specifications is pointless since specifications can be wrong and when a problem occur you need to figure out if either the code or the specification is responsible.

Like a CRC check, sometimes the payload is correct and the error is on the CRC, it's still damn useful.
