Bug#159738: Dependency between MD5 passwords and shadow passwords is described in install-doc but does not happen during installation

Package: install-doc
Version: 3.0.24
Severity: minor

The first sentence of section 8.6 "Shadow Passwords" seems to be wrong:

"Unless you said Yes to MD5 passwords,
the system will ask whether you want to enable shadow passwords."

This was not true for my 3.0r0 install for Intel x86:
I said Yes to MD5 passwords, and the system did ask in the next step
whether I want to enable shadow passwords.

Is the documentation incorrect or is the install program incorrect?
