I am running versions from the Ubuntu repositories (Ubuntu 16.04).

$ apt show findutils
Package: findutils
Version: 4.6.0+git+20160126-2

$ find --version
find (GNU findutils) 4.7.0-git

In a find man page there are the following spelling errors in the 'EXPRESSION' section:
optiona, regulat

Steps to reproduce:
$ man find

Expected result:
Positional options affect only tests or actions which follow them. Positional options always return true. The -regextype option for example is positional, specifying the regular expression dialect for regular expressions occurring later on the command line.

Actual result:
Positional optiona affect only tests or actions which follow them. Positional options always return true. The -regextype option for example is positional, specifying the regular expression dialect for regulat expressions occurring later on the command line.
