Follow-up Comment #2:

Actually not; the current source in thr git repo says this:

Execute command; true if zero status is returned. find takes all arguments
after ‘-execdir’ to be part of the command until an argument consisting of
‘;’ is reached. It replaces the string ‘{}’ by the current file name
being processed everywhere it occurs in the command. Both of these
constructions need to be escaped (with a ‘\’) or quoted to protect them
from expansion by the shell. The command is executed in the directory in which
find was run.

However the online version does need to be updated.
