[Samba] Documentation about level2-oplocks probably misleading?!?!

just noticed that the online manpage of smb.conf says:
level2 oplocks (S)
Currently, if kernel oplocks are supported then level2 oplocks are not
granted (even if this parameter is set to yes). Note also, the oplocks
parameter must be set to yes on this share in order for this parameter
to have any effect.
testparm -sv |grep level2 says:
level2 oplocks = Yes
less /etc/samba/smb.conf|grep -i level2
gives no output (= not set).
can i conclude now, that the documentation is not up2date and level2
oplocks work with kernel oplocks, because we did not set "level2
oplocks" in the smb.conf file but testparm reports it as being set?
or does testparm just display the default settings without logic
checking (e.g. if "kernel oplocks" == yes, then "level2 oplocks" = no)?
hope my question is clear :)
