No, I think you've been the victim of sloppy wording.
Here is the patch we apply for Fedora Core:
--- findutils-4.1.20/find/find.1.size 2004-06-25 16:13:24.081447303 +0100

.IP "\-size \fIn\fR[bckw]"
File uses \fIn\fP units of space. The units are 512-byte blocks by
-default or if `b' follows \fIn\fP, bytes if `c' follows \fIn\fP,
+default (or if `b' follows \fIn\fP), bytes if `c' follows \fIn\fP,
kilobytes if `k' follows \fIn\fP, or 2-byte words if `w' follows \fIn\fP.
The size does not count indirect blocks, but it does count blocks in
sparse files that are not actually allocated.
