No d for data node anymore?

Looking at the documentation cat nodes API | Elasticsearch Guide [8.11] | Elastic It appears that a "Hot" node should have roles hd ... but that's not true in real life. Is a hot node not a "data" node? Are 'data_content' nodes not considered 'data' nodes?

Generally no, see these docs:

In a multi-tier deployment architecture, you use specialized data roles to assign data nodes to specific tiers: data_content ,data_hot , data_warm , data_cold , or data_frozen . A node can belong to multiple tiers, but a node that has one of the specialized data roles cannot have the generic data role.

No data_content is different from data. It's abbreviated as s (I forget why)
