[docs] [issue13918] locale.atof documentation is missing func argument

Cédric Krier added the comment:

locale.atof is not about formatting but parsing string into float following the locale.
For now, the only ways I see to parse a string to get a Decimal is to first convert it into float (which is not good if precision matters) or to use the undocumented parameter.
