Bug report #19816
Parameter label "Expression" is not meaningful

The "Random points inside polygons" algorithm provides a parameter named "Expression" which imho does not help to know what user is supposed to fill in. A more verbose label would be handy (i notice that in the user manual docs, this parameter is called "Number or density of points" and as I suppose we do not invent it, i'd bet for some changes that later hide/remove that label and maybe it's not the only one affected)

Looks like it's evaluated and used as either the "number of points" or "density of points".
This is unfortunate -- I wish we'd caught this before 3.0. That parameter should be replaced by a normal "numeric" parameter, with a data-defined control for entering expressions.
