fwaccel conns - Documentation issue

I have found a discrepancy between SK and the command "fwaccel conns" help. Here the option F/f is described differently.

The SK sk153832 describes the following:

The following is described in the command help in R81 "fwaccel conns -h":

What is right now "fast_accel" or "Forward to Firewall"?

Cannot find it in SK, please double-check. Anyhow, actual help if what you need to rely on

This is covered in the addendum to my book:

p. 253: Correction: The F/f flags no longer appear in the output of fwaccel conns starting
in version R80.30; if a connection is being handled in the F2F path it does not appear at
all in the output of fwaccel conns, so commands such as fw ctl conntab and fw tab -u -t
connections -f must be used to verify the presence of an F2F-handled connection.

So it would appear that the F/f flags (which haven't appeared since R80.30) have been reborn in R81 as indicating a fast_accel'ed connection.  The letter choice here is a bit unfortunate.
