From manual page:

The fourth (optional) parameter "option" is shown with a default value of "msr"

In the parameter description section the options e,i,m,p and x are listed, but the r option is not explained.

The documentation for all other mb_ereg_* or mb_eregi_* functions also omits the r option, states to look in the description of mb_ereg_replace or has no explanation of the options at all.

The non multibyte versions of ereg_* or preg_* don't have an option parameter and the PCRE pattern modifier documntation also doesn't list an r option.

Websearches didn't help either.

Expected result:
An explanation of an option that is set by default

Actual result:
no clue what the r option is good for

Nothing in the Changelog. It only mentions the deprecation of the e modifier.

All MB regex options are explained on the mb_regex_set_options() man page[1].
This should probably be linked from the the other MB regex functions.
