exp direct parameter can have more than 1 character?

It seems when doing exp, oracle (at least 10gR2) only looks for the first character of DIRECT parameter. For example,
exp user/passwd direct=YN
exp user/passwd direct=NY
exp user/passwd direct=Y111
exp user/passwd direct=N111

all are working. I would not expect that based on what I get from

exp help=y

Any comments?
