Um. "Errata" may or may not be obscure: it's jargon, but it's close
enough to the normal "English" use of the word to not be too obscure.

But what's obscure about mkinitrd? (Apart from the name, but at least
it's consistent across command and RPM). The Original Poster talked
about mkinitrd, so he's obviously aware of what it is and what it does.

If mkinitrd was contained in a RPM with a different name, you'd have a
point. But it isn't.
