[docs] [issue33722] Document builtins in mock_open

New submission from Jay Crotts <crotts.jay at gmail.com>:

The examples on using mock_open only include instances where objects are mocked in the REPL, so '__main__'.open is replaced. Commonly objects are mocked for use in other test modules, so builtins.open would be used instead.

A note about this in the documentation would be useful not familiar with python internals. I'm happy to do a PR for it.
