Thank you for the bug report. It's mentioned here:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/server-parameters.html

8.11.2. Tuning Server Parameters

server-id                                                  0
server-id-bits                                             32
sha256-password-private-key-path                           private_key.pem

However I wasn't unable to find more info about it.

It's a Cluster system variable, related to --server-id-bits. They're both listed on these pages:
