Table local

"Help, More Information" for Table states:

  Table effectively uses Block to localize values or variables.

   But
   Clear[u];
   Table[u = i^2, {i, 5}];
   u

   Clear[u];
   Table[u = i^2;, {i, 5}];
   u

   In both cases the value 25 for u is given.
   If u were really local, it should have no value outside of the Table


   For me there is a contradiction that can cause a lot of trouble
