'man ps' says "see also ... stime" but doesn't describe stime

Bug Description

'man ps' has several references to stime (as a possible argument to, say, -o), for example

       bsdstart START time the command started. If the process
                             was started less than 24 hours ago, the
                             output format is " HH:MM", else it is "
                             Mmm:SS" (where Mmm is the three letters of
                             the month). See also
                             lstart, start, start_time, and stime.

However, there is no entry for stime. (There's stime(2), but that's unrelated to ps, and anyway 'stime' here appears in a list with other things that do appear in the "standard format specifiers" section.)
