[openssl-users] Query on TLS1.2 and use of DES ciphers

I am using TLS1.2 version between the standard openssl s_server and client and cipher set to DES-CBC-SHA. The connections from the client to the server goes through sucessfully. Referring the TLS1.2 RFC @ https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5246.txt,
I see the below quote there.
Removed IDEA and DES cipher suites. They are now deprecated and
will be documented in a separate document.I am assuming that means all DES (including 3-DES) ciphers should be removed from TLS1.2.
Also the above cipher is not in the list of https://www.openssl.org/docs/apps/ciphers.html#TLS-v1.2-cipher-suites.
My question is given the above, how are my s_server and s_client able to connect through using the above cipher and TLS1.2? Is it a bug in the implementation of the s_server and s_client?
