Incomplete status flag description in documentation for QHY174M-GPS

The documentation here: https://www.qhyccd.com/index.php?m=content&c=index&a=show&catid=30&id=190
says:

"33 now flag:  this can be used for the GPS statu indicator   bit[7..4] is the"

and stops.  What is the rest of the description for this field?  Are bits 7..4 the actual status value?  So the binary values in this byte would be:

0000xxxx  -- GPS powered up
0001xxxx  -- GPS working, but no time information
0010xxxx  -- GPS has time information, but no lock
0011xxxx  -- GPS locked

(where xxxx means we don't care about these bits)

Hi,
    It seem there is include some unuseful description,in fact you just need check the data of index 33,"bit[7..4] is the" is superfluous.
