Incomplete/Incorrect documentation of --console option

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/server-options.html#option_mysqld_console says about --console option the following(citation below):

"(Windows only.) Cause the default error log destination to be the console. This affects log sinks that base their own output destination on the default destination. See Section 5.4.2, “The Error Log”. mysqld does not close the console window if this option is used."

and I think it's misleading, incomplete and incorrect, because --console doesn't only log error, it actually shows Info and Warning messages as well. If I'll start mysqld.exe without --console, it won't show anything at all.
