User Guide: Flavor feature not specific to native binaries?

In the “Building native binaries” chapter in the User Guide, it describes the “flavor” feature. This feature isn’t mentioned anywhere else in the document. Isn’t it true that this feature isn’t specific to building native binaries?

At present the only core gradle feature using ‘flavor’ is the native binary support. The Android plugin also has a concept of ‘flavor’, but that plugin is not documented in the Gradle User Guide.
