The 4.0.2 documentation for the AD driver clearly states what is

It only refers to "domain functional level", not forest functional

If you are comfortable with opening a SR to get this fixed, I'd suggest
you go down that path. There are cases where the forest functional level
is important to determine what features can be used across the forest,
but I don't think this is relevant in this particular scenario.
