incorrect info in mysql docs

I just noticed this at

On FreeBSD, startup scripts generally should go in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/. 
The rc(8) manual page states that scripts in this directory are executed 
only if their basename matches the *.sh shell file name pattern. Any 
other files or directories present within the directory are silently 
ignored. In other words, on FreeBSD, you should install the mysql.server 
script as /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ to enable automatic startup.

That's not actually right is it? My mysql is started by 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server. rc(8) says *.sh is for older style 
startup scripts or for scripts that are to be read into the current shell.
