I am reading the part that says:

— Action: -execdir command ;

Execute command; true if zero status is returned. find takes all arguments
after ‘-execdir’ to be part of the command until an argument consisting of
‘;’ is reached... *The command is executed in the directory in which find
was run.*

I cut some of the text after _is reached_, and bolded the part I think needs

I believe the part that say _The command is executed in the directory in which
find was run_ should be updated to something like:
The command is executed in the parent directory of every file matched the
criteria. Meaning, the command is executed as if you have changed the current
working directory to the one containing a matching file found by _find_
command. Also, this means that *{}* is always basename.
