Beta sites have different threshold on many privileges. When out of beta the privilege will be gained at 2,500 rep. –  Oded Sep 5 '13 at 9:48
    
And the help pages are shared across the network. –  Johannes Kuhn Sep 5 '13 at 9:51
    
Sounds like they should be adjusted for beta sites! –  Jonathan Hobbs Sep 5 '13 at 10:28

— I edited the page on MSO¹, and it will be propagated across the network.

In general those pages should refer to other privileges by name, never by reputation, since the reputation thresholds differ between sites. When you need to refer to another privilege, you can link to it on MSO; the link will automatically be converted to the target site upon propagation.

¹ Anyone with 2000 reputation on Meta Stack Overflow can edit the privilege descriptions under http://meta.stackoverflow.com/privileges.
