The version I have in front of me is a bit shorter, 252 pages, but describes
polyfit in section 5.3 on page 91 along with the other polynomial functions.
lstsq (linear_least_squares is a backwards-compatibility alias that was recently
moved to numpy.linalg.old) is described in section 10.1 on page 149.
