STC3117 Error in Application Note

There seems to be an error in either the datasheet or the applicatio note of the STC3117 gas gauge.

 

The error is in the bit description of the REG_MODE register, specifically the VMODE bit.
The datasheet says the following:
VMODE = 0 - mixed mode
VMODE = 1 - power saving voltage mode
The application note says the opposite:
VMODE = 1 - mixed mode
VMODE = 0 - power saving voltage mode
I've attached screenshots of the relevant sections in both the datasheet and the application note.
datasheet_screenshot_1
This first screenshot is from the datasheet.
datasheet_screenshot_2
This second screenshot is also from the datasheet, confirming the first screenshot.
application_note_screenshot
This third screenshot is from the application note, contradicting the info from the datasheet from the first two screenshots.
Which document is correct?
