I'm old, but I liked the docs better when they didn't mention "the int argument" at all.  The "int=int" - or "_int=int" - argument is a CPython implementation detail.  It has nothing to do with the API.  And _of course_ users shouldn't mess with implementation details.  99.9+% will never notice the argument is there, and the fraction that do notice should infer that they shouldn't mess with it from that it's _not_ documented.
