[Samba] documentation inconsistency

I'm running samba 3 on debian linux (both x86 and alpha), and I noticed that
the /etc/default/samba comment:

# How should Samba (nmbd and smbd) run? Possible values are "daemons"
#       or "inetd".

contradicts the actual behaviour in /etc/init.d/samba:
              echo -n "Starting Samba daemons:"
              echo -n " nmbd"
              start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec /usr/sbin/nmbd -- -D
              if [ "$RUN_MODE" != "inetd" ]; then
                       echo -n " smbd"
                       start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec /usr/sbin/smbd -- -D
              echo "."

in that only the behaviour of smbd is governed by the RUN_MODE variable.


Given that Dubya has control of a such vast arsenal, I'm sure 
the most pressing issue on his mind is :
