SyntaxInformation and OptionsPattern

Here is a slightly modified example from the SyntaxInformation Function


Options[f] = {aaa -> 1, bbb -> 2}; 



   f] = {"ArgumentsPattern" -> {_, _, OptionsPattern[]}};


f[x, y, 3, aab -> 2] 


The "3" is clearly not an Option, and it exceeds the allowed number of
arguments - so why isn't it flagged in Red?
