Did you try it on a build? I find more helpful the HelpID:

Searching for fc45ka is not as helpful as searching for
CB_REDUCEIMAGERESOLUTION (specially from a developer's perspective, the
kid will lead you only to the kid SDF file, if I want to know where in
the source code this is used, I have to do another search:

the Help ID leads you to the source code, all the SDF files, you can compare all
translations quickly using opengrok, you can narrow your search only for
the source code, or only for l10n, etc.:

In short, I find more useful a non-pro build, where you can activate
extra warnings for overlapping controls in dialogs, text too long to fit
in a fixed text, multiple use of the same mnemonic, etc. And you can do
much with the help ID (it can be activated in a regular build by
exporting HELP_DEBUG=1
