True, this could be documented better - flagging as a docs bug. (It is mentioned at the bottom of, but that could be referenced better from the main documentation of the function higher up in the page)

There's actually more to it than just an oversight though - partial() fills in positional arguments from the left, so using one as a method would require specification of a carefully crafted selection of positional and keyword arguments to ensure the instance was bound and passed in at the right point.
