I will admit it is confusing. It also won't work if you try to use AF. If you switch it to 1:1 and try to use AF it will probably kick back out to the next magnification level. You need to switch to MF. Other than this it is a very nice lens.

Why do you say AF won't work at 1:1?

It doesn't for me. I read somewhere the technical reason AF is problematic at 1:1 but i can't remember it. I think that is one reason why most people seem to use MF at 1:1 macro. Maybe the other reason being to get the proper focus on a thin DOF, MF is better.  I don't know if it is peculiar to this lens, I only have used the 60mm for macro work.
