Transform options (Affect Only) tooltips are confusing

Blender Version
Broken: 2.81 and up

I understand that this may not technically be a bug, but it is at the very leas a UX concern. Consider the transform options. 'Parent' is straightforward, as is its tooltip. But the other two disagree with each other:

  • 'Origins' - Manipulate object data
  • 'Locations' - Manipulate origins

If there's now an 'Origins' option, surely that's the one that manipulates origins, and 'Locations' would manipulate, well, locations? Especially in light of the fact that 'Locations' was previously (in 2.80) called 'Only Origins', though it's not related to 'Origins'...
