Good catch. 

Currently we have
[[[
Datatype Property
     an OWL property that relates individuals to data values

Object Property
     an OWL property that relates individuals to other individuals

OWL Property
     an RDF property that belongs to the class extension of owl:Property
]]]

I suggest

[[[
...

OWL Property
     an RDF property that satisfies the OWL restrictions defined for
     either owl:ObjectProperty or owl:DatatypeProperty.
]]]

This is a little circular, but I hesitate to dump 'OWL Property',
since it does have a reasonable and intuitive interpretation.  And
we would then need to change the first two.

Reading through the glossary in Guide, I spotted:

[[
OWL Property
     an RDF property that belongs to the class extension of owl:Property
]]

This needs to be updated, as we currently do not define "owl:Property".
