bug#33335: 26; Doc strings of `trash-directory' and `move-file-to-trash'

Both of these doc strings seem to say that if function
`system-move-file-to-trash' is defined then it is used, regardless of
the value of option `trash-directory'.

A cursory look at the code defining `move-file-to-trash' suggests
otherwise.  And that would seem to make sense, giving users a way
to customize the directory in all cases.

Are the doc strings wrong, or am I misreading the code?

(cond (trash-directory
       ;; If `trash-directory' is non-nil, move the file there.
      ;; If `system-move-file-to-trash' is defined, use it.
      ((fboundp 'system-move-file-to-trash)
       (system-move-file-to-trash filename))
