Is there something wrong with refuse.README?

Hi, I am using the latest FreeBSD 5.3BETA5.

I was configuring cvsup's various supfiles and refuse file and found 
something strange with /usr/share/examples/cvsup/refuse.README. It 
stated in the README file that

"You can copy "refuse" to your sup directory and add or remove whatever 
you like. The example supfiles in this directory set CVSup's base 
directory to "/usr"....blah blah blah"

However, when I looked into ports-supfile and standard-supfile, both 
define these lines in them:

*default base=/var/db
*default prefix=/usr

Now, which one is correct?
Is this a bug? If this is, somebody please tell the maintainer as I am 
not familiar with this.
