I say there clearly is a difference. I even gave you an analogy with
numbers which can only be objectively true.

It seems like you're under the assumption that documentation can
replace the need to do your own performance tests. They can't. There's
no silver bullet and no easy way. You must always test things yourself
and see whether the benefits are applicable to your situation, there's
no need to blame the author for your own lack of research. As with
pretty much everything in life, YMMV.
