Wildcards permitted VS. Accept wildcard characters?

So something I noticed when looking at the Get-Service Help.

There are multiple paramters where it lists “Accept wildcard characters?” as False. But in the description of the parameter it says “Wildcards are permitted.” Thinking about it I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this in other cmdlet help as well.

Testing shows that wildcards do work for those parameters. I checked the Help for Wildcards, but it didn’t have much to add.

So is this documentation confused, or is there a distinction between these two statements?
