shred documentation incorrect

fileutils 4.1
manpage/info file for shred says:

   * log-structured or journaled filesystems, such  as  those
       supplied with

              AIX and Solaris (and JFS, ReiserFS, XFS, etc.)

These filesystems are only log structured for metadata and in near all
cases overwrite file data in place. 

One exception is ext3 in data journaling mode (that's not the default)
