Wrong tooltip in the material editor

I’ve been messing around with foliage and LODs, and I noticed that the tooltip of the checkbox “Dithered LODTransition” (notice that it also has a space missing) says “Wether the material should support a dithered LOD transition when used with the foliage system”.

From what I’ve gathered here in the answer hub, the foliage system always have dithered LODs and cannot be disabled. That checkbox only affects to static meshes. So I guess the description is wrong? It was a little bit confusing.

Besides, the documentation is still outdated and don’t mention that and other newer settings in the material editor.
