SQL Server 2000 Documentation Bug

I have found out this is how sql servers internal functions work.

This is one of very few places that I have found books online to be wrong.

Books online can be infurating in that even a search for the exact term required will return 50 articles above the one you actually need! 

SQL-92 niladic function Value returned 
CURRENT_TIMESTAMP       Current date and time. 
CURRENT_USER    Name of user performing insert.
SESSION_USER    Name of user performing insert.
SYSTEM_USER     Name of user performing insert.
USER    Name of user performing insert.
Books online is wrong here
