As described in the doc:

> If the supplied path directly references a script file (whether as source or as precompiled byte code), then __file__ will be set to the supplied path, and __spec__, __cached__, __loader__ and __package__ will all be set to None.

$ cat
print(f'{__name__ = }')
print(f'{__package__ = }')

$ cat
import runpy

$ python3
__name__ = '<run_path>'
__package__ = ''

`__package__` is not set to None as in the doc.
