I have a little provocative question. Do You (developers, maintaners
and translators) think that we need help texts in Yast?

Do You think that sentences like:
"<b>FS Type</b> shows the file system type."
or "Press <edit>, to edit NNNN, <add> to add NNNN and <delete> do
delete the NNNN."

will really help the user? ;-)

I'd say file a bug, please.
