Direction to [thing]

I don't entirely understand how this particular extension works. As a seasoned Scratch user, I've used the "distance to [thing]" block many times, but the new feature, "direction to [thing]," doesn't seem to work as it advertises.
It says that it detects the distance a sprite would have to turn to face [thing], but it never works that way. It instead seems to just indicate which direction [thing] is from the sprite's position. Is this a bug? If not, is it just a weird description?
Thank you

The description in the help box is wrong; it should say "at what direction to point" instead of "how much you need to turn".

That's a shame. It would have been a much more useful feature if it worked as described.

Welcome to the forum!

The help screen error is my fault, sorry. As for your "more useful feature," it's just
