ODBC database timeout

I have just seen that MSSQLServerDatabase is now deprecated so I am moving over to using ODBCDatabase.
I understand the connection timeout can be set in the connection string using the Connection Timeout parameter.
When I did a test query I got a DatabaseException:

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server]Query timeout expired

The documentation states that the Timeout property is the connection timeout and therefore I assume not the query timeout:
ODBCDatabase — Xojo documentation

However, if I set the Timeout to say 60 seconds, the query works fine. Therefore, is the documentation wrong and the Timeout property is actually the query (command) timeout?

Setting the ODBCDatabase.Timeout property will set both the connection SQL_ATTR_LOGIN_TIMEOUT and statement SQL_ATTR_QUERY_TIMEOUT attributes to the value you set:

Dim db as New ODBCDatabase
db.Timeout = 60
