Georg Brandl <georg at python.org> added the comment:

Well (speaking as the Sphinx developer here), I view it as legacy behavior that type does not matter for non-intersphinx linking.

So the intersphinx behavior is the "correct" one, but we can't change the other now because of compatibility.

But (speaking as a Python doc person), I am -0 on changing :func: to :class: when we change these types to be documented as classes: it adds no value at all.
