SubjectImprecise definition for proportional set size in documentation
The “proportional set size” (PSS) of a process is the count of pages
it has in memory, where each page is divided by the number of
processes sharing it.
The definition is a bit imprecise if a process uses multiple-mapping.
A real example is ZGC in OpenJDK, as asked at

A more precise wording could be something like `..., where each page
is divided by the number of mappings associated with it.`

PS: I have read,
but it's still unclear to me whether a mail or a ticket in bugzilla is
preferred. Since this is just a documentation issue, maybe a mail is
