The docs don't say anything about it. However the code is there (docs bug probably). 

See the following lines in
    57     if pattern[0] != '.':
    58         names = [x for x in names if x[0] != '.']
    59     return fnmatch.filter(names, pattern)

The documentation is even harder to follow.

The glob docs say:
"The pattern may contain simple shell-style wildcards a la fnmatch."

but the fnmatch docs say:
"Similarly, filenames starting with a period are not special for this module, and are matched by the * and ? patterns."

The posix standard states that "if a filename begins with a period ( '.' ), the period shall be explicitly matched"
