The generic FAQs provided with VBulletin refer readers to check for site-specific material, which indicates that the the material in those FAQs don't provide specific info. That info points out the site-specific guidelines provide the final word on how the site is set up.
Then there's the fact that there is a board devoted to "User Guidelines & Forum Features" which appears at the top of the site board listings. The presence of a board with such a title serves as an indication that the site rules can be found therein, so if one has a question about such things, one can look there.
The system, as it is currently structured, is set up to point anybody interested to the information necessary. One has to avoid following all of the written directions to not find the relevant info.
The generic FAQs direct readers to check site-specific guidelines.
The board where the site-specific guidelines can be found is prominent in the site layout.
The site-specific guidelines are clearly marked as such.
I believe it safe to say that your suggestion is already in place--as witnessed by the generic FAQs pointing out that a user should check for site-specific settings.
