Does Deformation - Uniform Scale work?

Does the node for uniform scale deformation work? My first experience was with version 10 and now I’m on 12.1, and unless I’m doing something wrong, I believe that it’s been broken the whole time. Am I right or am I missing something? If it is broken, are there any plans to fix it?

The node is Deformation Uniform Scale.

Hi Mark,
I’m not quite sure what exactly the node name regarding " the node for uniform scale deformation".
Could you tell me the exact node name in v10 or in 12.1 ?
Please let me know.
