are /etc/ld.so.conf and ld-elf.so.conf still used by ldconfig(8) ?

On -current, according to the ldconfig man page:
/var/run/ld.so.hints Standard hints file for the a.out dynamic
/var/run/ld-elf.so.hints Standard hints file for the ELF dynamic
/etc/ld.so.conf Conventional configuration file containing
directory names for invocations with -aout.
/etc/ld-elf.so.conf Conventional configuration file containing
directory names for invocations with -elf.
/etc/objformat Determines whether -aout or -elf is the
default. If present, it must consist of a
single line containing either
`OBJFORMAT=aout' or `OBJFORMAT=elf'.
I gave a quick look at the ldconfig source and it seems to me that
/etc/ld.so.conf and /etc/ld-elf.so.conf are not used anymore.
During system startup ldconfig is passed the path set by "ldconfig_paths"
If I am correct, could somebody fix the man page? It is misleading.
