Keystore wrong location in version 7.2.0

Documentation says:

Filebeat creates the keystore in the directory defined by the path.config configuration setting.

However, keystore is created in /path_where_tar_was_extracted/filebeat-7.2.0-linux-x86_64/data/ .

I have already defined path.config variable accordingly in filebeat.yml, but the behavior is not the expected.

I would suggest either to update the documentation to say that it is stored in (instead of path.config) or to make Filebeat store it in path.config.

obviously you have found a documentation inaccuracy on page, because source code tells exactly that it will be created under the data path by default.
I will open an issue for that so that this will be corrected:
