Is the arrow with label "5" should be from the first "brown" term to the last "dog" term? JavaDocs says

Construct a SpanNearQuery. Matches spans matching a span from each clause, with up to <code>slop</code> total unmatched positions between them.

So if there are 3 clauses, are the "unmatched" positions between the first and last matched terms in sentence "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"?
