This is a case of bad semantics applied.
When you are writing your post you can hit the "Files" button to get the file manager in a popup, then check the box next to your pdf file, then click (believe it or not) "make img tag" or something like that and it will provide a link to the file even though it is not an image. The "linked files" feature is specifically for images - and only images. It works much like the "Make posts" feature when you are on your file manager tab: it puts an image into your post that will be properly resized for the skin you are using assuming your skin has the right bits of code in it. BUT as you've discovered (or almost possibly nearly discovered) it is only for images.
So the thing that doesn't say "img" is for images only and the thing that does say "img" is for every type of file you might want to have linked in a post. And the thing that says "linked" is for images that are embedded but not files that are accessible via a link. :roll:
