On that very page, the instance attributes of datetime objects are documented:
Instance attributes (read-only):
Between MINYEAR and MAXYEAR inclusive.
Between 1 and 12 inclusive.
Between 1 and the number of days in the given month of the given year.
That's how you know that a datetime instance d has d.year, d.month and
d.day attributes, and how you know what they mean. The docs for the
other datetime module objects have similar sections.
