[Yum] symbolic links with yum-arch

hi people

I am using yum-2.0.5-1 on FC1 and when I run yum-arch on a directory 
full of symbolic links to other directories - it works!

Strange thing is I just read the yum-arch man page and saw that the 
default behaviour is NOT to follow symbolic links.

Has the default behaviour changed and the man page not updated? or can 
someone explain why my yum-arch is creating all of the necessary headers 
by following my sym links?
