Thank you for clarifying my misunderstanding. I wonder if you consider the statement on pg. 126 of the WP-34S manual correct then? :

"... ϰ²INV equals ϰ²p in the HP-21S ..."

I replaced it by "... χ²INV corresponds to χ²p in the HP-21S ..." and put an extra footnote on p. 55 stating:

The HP-21S returns Q instead of P. Thus, also the inverse works differently there.

Also modified the respective IOP entries for F, t, and Φ this afternoon. Thank you for your head up. Anyway, however, those modifications will show up no earlier than with the second (revised) edition of the printed manual. Please be patient.
