Unhelpful Camera Help Files

In recent tests when trying to get some quick clarity on specific functions, we've been noticing that camera help files are often useless.

For example, looking at a Hanwha camera, which has multiple IR modes, simply named Auto 1 and Auto 2 with minimal performance difference we could see:

The help file says this, which doesn't tell me anything more than that mode names themselves.

Or this example from a Uniview manual, trying to get an answer to what "smoothing" does (which it doesn't answer).

This doesn't seem to be getting better over time, either. Has anyone else seen this? Any other offenders/examples to point out?
