forceDelayedSoftwareUpdates key documentation is confusing.
Update from February 2018 says forceDelayedSoftwareUpdates is part of (as Profile Manager generates), but January update indicates that the key is part of payload.
What is correct, and if both are set, which one wins ?

Profile Manager (still the case with 5.6 beta 1) shows “delay for 90 days” when forceDelayedSoftwareUpdates is checked, but the new documentation says that when forceDelayedSoftwareUpdates is true, enforcedSoftwareUpdateDelay is used to define the time the updates are delay, and that the default is 30 days. 

Steps to Reproduce:
Profile Manager, create a configuration profile for macOS, go to restrictions - compare with doc

Expected Results:
Clarification in the documentation

Actual Results:
Documentation is unclear about the key location and the default value.
