Training a Random Forest with eta <> 1?

Hi there,

I’d like to ask what happens if you train an xgb random forest with the learning_rate set lower than 1. According to the instructions on the official website (https://xgboost.readthedocs.io/en/latest/tutorials/rf.html) the " eta (alias: learning_rate ) must be set to 1 when training random forest regression". Could you please elaborate on the reason? What happens if the rf is trained with eta, say, 0.3?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Cheers,
Attila
