The implementation of this function is not user friendly.
The location of this checkbox in Settings→Preferences-> Interface is
inconvenient for real using  by users who understand well how it works and
want to flexibly
use all modes and to quickly switch between modes.

Even if the checkbox is off, a user should be able to use this function by
holding down the keys for example Shift-Alt +KP №..

If the checkbox is on, a user should have a small indicator (or changing
the color of the cursor) on Compositor and the main window.
Blinking insertion point ? Ok. But:
1 - That is only in main window
2 - Тhe checkbox is enabled, a user presses KP, the ins. point does not
blink (the same as without this checkbox set.)
How can he/she distinguish between modes? Especially if he forgot his
choice ..

This is not quite true.
'Reverse plays' works the same as in 'seeking' mode  and this rule (from
main manual) does not work
*".. If you frame advance forward and then frame advance backward, the
displayed frame does not change. "*

Why does this function have such a name?

Please, make a more detailed explanation.
How about renaming to *'Forward Render Enable Displacement** '+1'**'*
At least, it makes sense to make an explanation_yellow tip: something like
'to enable the seeking mode for transport controls'
