R. David Murray added the comment:

You missed the part where it says "no matter where it is called from".  That is, the path is stripped off.  The sentence could be changed to emphasize that ("the :ref:`~os.basename` of sys.argv[0]").

The backslash is indeed a bit odd and probably should be changed.
