This is behavior has been true since packages were introduced, and is not going to change.  However, I agree that it could be better documented.

In Python3 something that needs to do dynamic module discovery can use importlib to be sure of using the same logic that Python itself uses.  (Well, that's completely true only for 3.3+, but it is 99+% true for 3.1 and 3.2 as well).
