I see that now. Yeah it's further down in the docs and doesn't actually call out '' like is done for AF_CAN:

A tuple (interface, ) is used for the AF_CAN address family, where interface is a string representing a network interface name like 'can0'. The network interface name '' can be used to receive packets from all network interfaces of this family.

Ideally I think putting something in this section would be helpful:

A pair (host, port) is used for the AF_INET address family, where host is a string representing either a hostname in Internet domain notation like 'daring.cwi.nl' or an IPv4 address like '', and port is an integer.
