[docs] [issue9442] Update sys.version doc

Éric Araujo report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org>:

Attaching a patch to edit mention of “build number” in library/sys.

I also don’t understand “The first three characters are used to identify the version in the installation directories (where appropriate on each platform)”, maybe someone who does could enlighten me.

If #5778 is rejected, the doc will need another update to mention that there may be a newline in sys.version.
