In partprobe/partprobe.c it says:

  Inform the OS of partition table changes.
    -d, --no-update  don't update the kernel

To me "updating the kernel" means to install a new version of the 
kernel.  But it seems that "don't inform the kernel" is the 
intended meaning.  If so, then a better long form of the option 
would be "--dry-run".

Also, in the first line it speaks of "OS", and then later of 
"kernel", while it seems to mean the same thing.  Better use the 
same word in both cases then:

  Inform the operating system about partition table changes.

    -d, --dry-run   do not actually inform the operating system
