[MarkLogic Dev General] fn:error and error code

I've noticed that in the documentation for the fn:error function that the
first parameter can be an xs:QName for the error code. However, when I
xdmp:log the caught error I get the code in the name and the name in the
code field.

Here is the code that I'm running:

xquery version "1.0-ml";

module namespace test = "test-error";

declare function test-error() {
    try {
    fn:error(xs:QName("MY-ERROR"), "my test error", ())
    } catch ($e) {

and here is what I get in the resulting error xml:

<error:code>my test error</error:code>

Any idea why this works this way?
