R. David Murray added the comment:
Thanks for taking the time to make a report, but that is not a typo. That asterisk indicates that daemon is a keyword only argument, and is standard python3 syntax. You can see it if you follow the source link to the threading module.

Sorry for that. I've read up PEP 3102 and now understand what you meant.
Sorry for the noise.
