They always have produced the same display, since Day 1. Only the features (e.g.
keys/actions) are different. Personally, I have always set `C-x C-b' to

The main point here is to just mention the option in the mode help, rather than
introduce Customize buttons and other silliness into the buffer menu.

This isn't a bug. Your report is an enhancement request.

My point was that the vanilla code could do what buff-menu+ does in this regard.
It is a hell of a lot easier to hit `+' to change the value of an option than it
is to use Customize or `set-variable'. It lets you adjust the display on the fly
to compensate for differing buffer names.
