Feedback on System Monitoring — CARP Status
The section "Maintenance Mode" would be more helpful if it explained the effect of entering maintenance mode, such as "enabling maintenance mode will cause the host to stop participating in all CARP clusters. If the host is acting as CARP master on any network, enabling maintenance mode will result in the host to stop participating in that network, and a new master will be elected among other nodes in the cluster, if available".

While it could use some more information, your description is not accurate. It still participates in CARP but it is demoted to a lower priority such that the other node will take over.
The behavior you describe is closer to what happens when you disable CARP rather than using maintenance mode.
