Current Content is:
Output type - a drop-down list that allows you to select the output type (a .msi, .msm or .wixlib file).

There should also be a type ".exe" in the docs and a useful description of that. I guess this is a .msi "prefixed" with a bootstrapper?

OutputType doesn't actually change the content of the output. That's determined by your setup authoring. The doc should be updated to mention that. Votive should be updated to remove the drop-down since it's not actually useful for changing the output.
