Node.js MongoDB driver cursor does not count correctly

I'm having issues using MongoDB Node.js native driver version 2.2.29.

This is the code I'm running:

let cursor = db.collection( 'log' )
               .find({timestamp: { '$lte': 1498556839 }})
               .sort( { create_date_ttl: -1 } )
               .limit( 3 );

If I now run cursor.count() and handle the Promise I see the count is giving me 56 records instead of 3 (the limit specified).

cursor.count().then( (count) => {
   // count here is 56

However if I run cursor.count( function (err, count) {}) using callbacks, the count is correct only 3 records.

cursor.count( function (err, count) {
  // count here is 3 according to the limit specified.

Does anybody having same issue or can someone explain me how is this possible? Maybe I'm missing something, but seems to be ok according with the official documentation.

Thanks in advance.

Explicity set first argument ( applySkipLimit ) to true, and then skip and limit will be appilied.

cursor.count(true).then( (count) => {
   // count here will be 3

It seems documentation is unclarified, because there is written that true should be default value. As mentioned in comment it is behaviour of callback.
