It looks fine to me:

$ ./bash --version
GNU bash, version 4.4.23(7)-release (x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0)

$ ./bash -c 'help pwd'
pwd: pwd [-LP]
    Print the name of the current working directory.

      -L        print the value of $PWD if it names the current working
      -P        print the physical directory, without any symbolic links

    By default, `pwd' behaves as if `-L' were specified.

    Exit Status:
    Returns 0 unless an invalid option is given or the current directory
    cannot be read.
