os.path.islink documentation error?

os.path.islink documentation says:

"Return True if path refers to a directory entry that is a symbolic
link. Always False if symbolic links are not supported."

It's not clear to me why it is mentioned the DIRECTORY term.
Shouldn't os.path.islink be used to just check if the *path* passed as
argument is a symlink?
In such case I would change it in:

"Return True if path refers to a symbolic link"
