SilentGhost <ghost.adh at runbox.com> added the comment:

The only place this phrase appears is in CompletedProcess.args description and it is correct there. Whether args arguments of subprocess.run (or generally Popen) can be a list or a string is discussed in Frequently Used Arguments section, and it is perfectly clear from reading the text under which condition you can pass a string as args argument. I don't think anything needs fixing, both implementation and docs are correct.
