What about at least documenting it? Since a real user ran into this and reported it as a problem, I think it would make sense to make the discrepancy explicit.

Alternatively a generalized note can be added to the documentation of itertools stating that the "equivalent" code samples are only approximate and differ in small details from the real implementations.
