Thank you for your email. We greatly appreciate any feedback or suggestions for ways we can improve Google Analytics.
Please note that I have informed the concerned team about the error in the documentation. As you mentioned, the article is incorrect:

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Please note that this documentation will soon be edited.
