Does the GENERATE_CONTOURS command support the SAMPLING_METHOD parameter?

The script documentation,

does not mention the SAMPLING_METHOD parameter unlike the GUI, Generate Contours (from Terrain Grid). See attached image.

Is this just an oversight in the documentation? If I add the parameter to the script can I assume it will respect the setting?

    The SAMPLING_METHOD is not currently supported on the GENERATE_CONTOURS command.  I have opened bug #17322 to address this.  We will post a message on this thread when the status of the bug changes.
