Docs do not reflect difference in wiki processing between custom text and textarea fields

Wiki-formatted fields of type
In http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracTicketsCustomFields it is stated that both type=text and type=textarea fields can be set to format=wiki. This is true, but the contents of the two fields are processed differently. Specifically, macros aren't expanded in type=text fields even if they only generate one line of text.
The choice to have these two fields behave differently seems to be a conscious choice, following the comments and commits from ticket:1791.
This is not consistent with the behavior of built-in fields. Typing a macro into the keywords field will cause the macro to be expanded.
I don't really have a problem with the current behavior, but for consistency's sake, either custom type=text fields should behave the same as built-in fields when format=wiki or the custom field docs should be modified to explain that type=text custom fields don't get full wiki processing that built-in fields and custom type=textarea fields get.
