The wording "stick to the front page" is wrong

In the gutenberg editor screen one of the first things I encounter for a post is the option to "stick to the front page".
This is really confusing wording if not plain wrong. I know the wording is the same in the classic editor. But there it is tucked pretty far away in the publish metabox.
In the gutenberg editor it is one of the first options in sight.
Not any new user knows what it means, so it is very confusing.

A better wording would be "stick to top of post list". But as not many people use this ancient feature I wouldn't mind if this option is removed completely.

Alternatively, it would be better to find a better place for it in Gutenberg, so that it's not the first thing people stumble upon. I would not know a good place at the moment though.
