info inconsistency about "Shell Commands in Dired"

In the section "Shell Commands in Dired" of Emacs Info, 
I found following lines:

   * If the command string contains `?' surrounded by whitespace, the
     current file name is substituted for `?'.  You can use `?' this
     way more than once in the command, and each occurrence is
     replaced.  For instance, here is how to uuencode each file, making
     the output file name by appending `.uu' to the input file name:

          uuencode ? ? > ?.uu

?.uu is surrounded by whitespace. So above command line generated an
unexpected file.
