    Description

      The doc  https://puppet.com/docs/puppet/7/types/exec.html and https://puppet.com/docs/puppet/6/types/exec.html talk about the importance of idempotency and highlight the 3 scenarios to make an exec idempotent, but in one of them, where the command being run itself is idempotent, it should note: even if the command is idempotent, it will still mark a changed resource, because the command will run in every puppet run; therefore, the other 2 scenarios should always be used to avoid this.
