>From "info find":

     The number can be prefixed with a `+' or a `-'.  A plus sign
     indicates that the test should succeed if the file uses at least N
     units of storage (a common use of this test) and a minus sign
     indicates that the test should succeed if the file uses less than
     N units of storage.  There is no `=' prefix, because that's the
     default anyway.

Note that this clarification is not present in the man page find(1). So
it's either a bug in find or a bug in the documentation.
