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.
