RaycastResult.Instance type is 'any' instead of 'BasePart'

I expect that RaycastResult.Instance will have the type of BasePart, or at least Instance as the name suggests. Instead, the type is any. You can see the issue in the code below.


Reproduction Steps

-- psuedo:
local result = workspace:Raycast(origin, direction, params)
if result then
    result.Instance. --> No autocomplete here
    result. --> Autocomplete for `RaycastResult` here
end

Expected Behavior

RaycastResult.Instance’s type is BasePart.

Actual Behavior

RaycastResult.Instance type is any.

May I include the fact the return type for Instance:FindFirstChild() is mismatched too? (supposed to be Instance? but its Instance)

Any updates on this? This is still occuring for me.

Would also like an update on this. Looks like a trivial fix.

Still says the type is any even though the description suggests the perfect types it could be replaced with!
