You misread that paragraph:

""" For instance, to execute the statement x += y, where x is an instance of a class that has an __iadd__() method, x.__iadd__(y) is called."""

This is the present case, and the case of most mutable containers.

"""If x is an instance of a class that does not define a __iadd__() method, x.__add__(y) and y.__radd__(x) are considered, as with the evaluation of x + y."""

This is not the present case.
