Martin Panter added the comment:

This also bugs me, and the same problem exists in other parts of the documentation. Perhaps you might be interested in Issue 23738 and whether changing to the new notation used by PEP 457, pydoc, help(), Argument Clinic is any good:

seek(offset, whence=SEEK_SET, /)

But in the mean time, I think the proposed patch is okay, and would certainly benefit the Python 2 documetation where using the new PEP 457 slash indicator is less likely to be appropriate.
