So looking at the documentation from old versions, it looks like
it was intended to be 'scroll-backward-page-only'

<PREVIOUS> (arrow key) (`scroll-backward-page-only')
<PRIOR> (arrow key)
`b', vi-like operation
`C-b', vi-like operation
     Shift the text in this window down.  The inverse of
     `scroll-forward-page-only'.  Does not scroll beyond the start of
     the current node.  The default scroll size can be changed by
     invoking the(`scroll-backward-page-only-set-window') command, `w'
     under `--vi-keys', with a numeric argument.

I will change it accordingly.
