I asked on #python-dev and was told that it's most likely due to legacy reasons that the class has things like `socket.__init__` instead of `super().__init__`

bpo-31853: Replaced socket.method calls with super() in SSLSocket. (#4048)
msg314516 - (view) Author: Mads Jensen (madsjensen) * Date: 2018-03-27 11:20
There are lots of legacy calls in the form of ClassName.method, which should be replaced with super().method.

Why *should*?

Legacy ParentClass.method() call is faster than super().method() call, because there are no temporary proxy object.

I don't think there are enough reason to replace all legacy parent calls.

The only time this should matter semantically is if someone is trying to subclass SSLSocket and use multiple inheritance. This is something that people *really* shouldn't do.

It also potentially makes it harder to backport ssl changes to 2.7.

I'm not really seeing the advantages here...

I agree

Also this ticket was closed a couple of months ago and is about the SSL module. Your PR is about a different module. Although I think that recycling is generally a good idea, it doesn't apply to ticket numbers.
