Berker Peksag <berker.peksag at gmail.com> added the comment:

The documentation you've quoted is for traceback.extract_tb(). traceback.format_tb() documentation only says:

    A shorthand for ``format_list(extract_tb(tb, limit))``.

Issue 27910 is about updating the documentation of extract_tb(), format_list(), and StackSummary.from_list().

I'm closing this as a duplicate of issue 27910.
