It should, otherwise it's a bug in either the manpage or ldconfig.

When it does something. For example, if your cache contains libfoo.so.1 and
you installed /usr/local/lib/libfoo.so.2, then ldconfig -vm /usr/local/lib
Updating libfoo.so.1.0 to /usr/local/lib/libfoo.so.2
Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
and never get to the software part.
