Section Number and Name: table 18.2 vs. section 15.3.3

Describe the issue: The docs for granular search describe how the caret (^) sign works in granular matching for permissions. For scoped search however, the caret is not documented even though it is auto-completed and it's meaning is different from granular search. 

Suggestions for improvement: 
Please add an example in section 15.3.3 to demonstrate the use of the caret in scoped search.

Something like

    facts.architecture ^ (x86_64,i386) 

would fit nicely with the other examples. 

Additional information: 

The caret in scoped_search means 'in', like in SQL, not 'starts with' like in regular expressions. It is confusing to not have this documented.
