Docs: mistake in wp_insert_term inline documentation

There is a mistake in wp_insert_term inline docs:
The error is located here: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/5.4/src/wp-includes/taxonomy.php#L2103

"The term name to add or update."

Given terms can only be added and not updated, we should say "The term name to add".

Props should be attributed to @bmartinent who spotted the issue.
