Bug report #19808
[Processing] Description not in line with "input layer" parameter capabilities

Some algorithms are described as accepting line or polygon features but the input layer drop-down still lists point layer (I don't know if point layers should be excluded or the description may need some review):
Extract vertices / extract specific vertices
Moreover, there's some kind of conflict between "vertices" and "points" so I don't know how desirable/expected is the point geometry presence in "Remove duplicate vertices".

I meant conflict between description and input: I don't think anyone will expect it works with point given the following.
This algorithm takes a polygon or line vector layer and combines their geometries into new geometries.One or more attributes can be specified to dissolve only geometries belonging to the same class (having the same value for the specified attributes), alternatively all geometries can be dissolved.
All output geometries will be converted to multi geometries. In case the input is a polygon layer, common boundaries of adjacent polygons being dissolved will get erased.
