[Samba] samba.org docs man-pages out of date

Hi Team,

I just noticed the html man-pages on samba.org are not update for 4.18.

The problemetic page I found is: 
the list of operations is invalid for 4.18 (it was correct for 4.17) and 
indeed the vfs_full_audit.8.xml in the source-tree has the correct values.

Are the html man-pages not generated as part of the release process?

And in that case, could some update them to match with the current release?

Perhaps for others:

I came to this after investigating why my smb-server with full_audit 
enabled failed every share access attempt with NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL 
after the upgrade from 4.17 to 4.18.

It turned out 'fsync' is no longer a valid option of vfs_full_audit 
('full_audit:success' or 'full_audit:failure') and the result is no user 
access to any share. The good news is that least this caused me to find 
the culprit now (during upgrade tests) instead of much later :-)
