hmc835 lo2 single ended clarification

The hmc835 v04.1113 figures 12 and 13 says:

Single-Ended Output Power LO1_N, LO2_P ...

This is consistant with 2.23 Reg 17h Modes Register which says:

[8] R/W Enables Single-Ended output mode for LO1 output
1- Single-ended mode, LO_N pin is enabled, and
LO_P pin is disabled
0- Differential, both LO_N and LO_P pins enabled

[9] R/W Enables Single-Ended output mode for LO2 output
1- Single-ended mode, LO2_P pin is enabled, and
LO2_N pin is disabled
0- Differential mode, both LO2_N and LO2_P pins enabled

However Table 2 "Pin Descriptions" says:

18 LO2_P RF Output LO2_P, positive side, used for differential
or dual outputs only.

19 LO2_N RF Output LO2_N, negative side, used in single-ended,
differential, or dual output mode

26 LO1_N RF output LO_N, negative side, used for single-ended,
differential, or dual output mode

27 LO1_P RF output LO_P, positive side, used for differential
or dual outputs only.

So according to "Pin Descriptions" LO1_N and LO2_N are the outputs
which are single-ended capable.

If I'm running LO1 in differential mode and LO2 in single-ended
mode is the SE output on LO2_P or LO2_N ... the documentation seems
to contradict itself.
