Hi, can you add some additional context and/or attach a test case for this problem? This topic provides some useful guidelines: https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/troubleshooting/questions/howto-file-bug/
Well this is not really a bug.
Do you know what [Flag] means ?
The broader developer community would be the best and quickest place to seek answers to questions:
In case it might also be a helpful reference, you can find some general recommendations on the best places to ask various kinds of questions about Xamarin on:

Please go to msdn, check for the FlagAttribute in the doc.

Hello @softlion; sorry, my misunderstanding: you were saying above that this is not really a bug. Do you mean that this is a documentation bug? Can you tell us exactly how you would like this to be resolved?
If it's a documentation bug, can you provide a link to the page (or pages) in error? You mentioned MSDN -- are you referring to a page on msdn.microsoft.com or developer.xamarin.com/api (or both)? Also, you mention "[Flag]", do you really mean "[Flags]" (or perhaps "[System.Flags]")? Thanks in advance!

Additionally you can look directly at a decompiled DLL on these enums as well.
