Absolutely. Only if I RTFM: it says 
"In the event of a problem or error". So what's wrong with what I've 
said? I take "problem/error" to not include 3xx responses. If you 
disagree then the documentation would appear to not be clear enough to 
one or other of us.

Given it does not explicitly indicate behaviour in this particular 
matter, we should look at what the code does; which _was_ not to treat 
them as errors... until someone made a change at which point it broke 
peoples' assumptions/environments and caused them to file bugs.
