Well, no, it doesn't tell the whole story regarding your question.  That
command says "use what lsb_release --short --description says, and if it
returns an error then fall back to Ubuntu".  It does not explain why
you're getting "Ubuntu" after configuring lsb_release to say something

I suppose it's possible that you could have misconfigured
/etc/lsb-release such that the lsb_release command fails with an error.
