It's already in the 3.x docs (but not 2.x):

“Strings and buffers

These formats allow to access an object as a contiguous chunk of memory. You don’t have to provide raw storage for the returned unicode or bytes area. Also, you won’t have to release any memory yourself, except with the es, es#, et and et# formats.”
