sorry for too short a description.
Please note that in the description of the function of Win ...., see "Return Value" for the case of "Failure" for the same event are various descriptions (I do not mean different values ​​and only way to describe).

As an example of a good / full, description, give
"if no window Matches the criteria"
but extended
"if no window Matches the criteria (Title and Text)"

I think it will harmonize documentation and facilitate understanding, especially for those who do not necessarily speak English well.

In fact the best harmonization need AutoIt code change not just the doc,
to set @error in such case.

That was not the initial AutoIt philosophy of returning error on Builtin. Only when the successful return value cannot be differentiate, the @error was set.
