[docs] [issue16701] Docs missing the behavior of += (in-place add) for lists.

Martin Panter added the comment:

The “s += t” operation assigns the result back to s. So it could involve an extra __setattr__()/__setitem__() call, or an exception trying to modify a tuple item, etc. The extend() and slice assignment versions don’t have this extra stage.
