Default apt-cache --names-only search apm | grep sleepd. Is there a bug?

$ apt-cache --names-only search apm | grep sleepd
sleepd - puts an inactive or low battery laptop to sleep

Am I right that, according to man apt-cache, mentioning sleepd is a bug?

$ man apt-cache | grep -A20 ' search regex' | head
search regex [ regex ... ]
search performs a full text search on all available package
lists for the POSIX regex pattern given, see regex(7). It
searches the package names and the descriptions for an
occurrence of the regular expression and prints out the package
name and the short description, including virtual package names.
If --full is given then output identical to show is produced for
each matched package, and if --names-only is given then the long
description is not searched, only the package name is.

$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/apt-cache
apt: /usr/bin/apt-cache
$ dpkg -l apt
ii apt 0.8.14.1 Advanced front-end for dpkg

Yep, well... kind of. Already reported ;-)

"apt-cache search --names-only" also searchs for "Provides", man page
should be updated
