If a page is meaningless for a log file, the answer should be NULL instead of 0 - only joking

La, la, la, I can't hear you...

So we have another example of BoL contradicting itself: one page describes the size of log files in terms of 8kkb pages, the limit on logfile sizes as a number of 8k pages, the control of fixed increment growth of logfiles in units of 8k pages (rounded to a multiple of 64k) and another one states clearly that log files don't contain pages.
The question and chosen answer choose one of those pages as delivering the correct answer; how is that choice made? Is there any documentation from MS that resolves the contradiction? Has MS even noticed that its documentation contradicts itself on this topic? Would they care if they had noticed?
