I agree the info provided (either name of the function or tooltip) can
be improved to reflect this particularity. While I understand the
function is meant to work that way (so, not a bug, per se) a PDF is
nonetheless a vector format and to see it rasterized is a bit
mindboggling (sorry, can't find a more precise word) to anyone used to
work with them.
Maybe a tooltip saying "including PDFs which will be rasterized at the
said resolution" (or something more elegantly said) could prove to be
helpful and useful.
