"The differences are that the locate information might be out of date, and that locate handles wildcards in the pattern slightly differently than find (see Shell Pattern Matching)."


I checked the section Shell Pattern Matching and I absolutely see no difference among locate and find.

Maybe the writer thinks to

locate pattern

where pattern does not contain wildcards, but this has already been explained just above line 651.
