I think that this particular instance, is a matter of wording not
being clear and unambiguous.

What I believe to have been meant and intended, is the text slightly
reworded, so that it instead, reads as

Perhaps someone more knowledgeable than me, can verify that.

It is a bit like the text at
where the text is written;
"Cloris Leachman later was on "Lassie". She was the boy who owned Lassie's mom."
wherein, I believe the second sentence, instead of indicating that
Cloris Leachman played the role of a boy that had been the owner of
the dog that was the mother of Lassie, should have indicated that
Cloris Leachman played the mother of the boy that had owned Lassie.

It is all in the way that text is worded.

It needs to be clear and unambiguous.
