Will the Peak Menu Max amperage function capture the maximum amperage of a short circuit?

What is the purpose of the max amperage current function (Imax)?

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers

Micrologic trip units found on Powerpact H,J,L,P,R frame and Masterpact NT/NW  Display: peak current, or Max current display value
Models: 2.0A, 3.0A, 5.0A and 6.0A, 5.0P, 6.0P, 5.0H, 6.0H, 5.2A,5.3A, 6.2A,6.3A, 5.2E,5.3E,6.2E and 6.3E

The peak or max current function is only for load currents and overloads and slowly rising ground faults.  This function is not meant to capture the maximum current during a short circuit.
