I didn't look at the code. I just followed the documentation.

Well, there are multiple scenarios.
1. Just clicking on the item.
2. Clicking on the item with the Ctrl key pressed
3. Clicking on the item with the Shift key pressed.

I think that 1 should be defined as multi-select, while 2 and 3 should
be defined as extended one.

And from what I understand, MSW, OSX and Qt all agree with me. ;-)

Thank you.
