Description:
I found two different descriptions of the *.reject files:

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/mysql-server/latest/PAGE_INTRODUCTION.html

The actual test result is written to a file in the mysql-test/var/log directory with a .reject suffix, and the difference between the .result and .reject files is presented for evaluation.

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/mysql-server/latest/PAGE_MYSQLTEST_FRAMEWORK_COMPONENTS.html

The r directory contains test case result files:
...
A file name of the form test_name.reject contains output for the named test case if the test fails due to output mismatch (but not it it fails for other reasons).

And in the second case, there is a typo: 
 but not it it fails for other reasons -> but not if it fails for other reasons

How to repeat:
Not necessary

Suggested fix:
Put the correct one
