I agree the documentation is correct here, and the stdlib should be updated to implement the expected behaviour.

While distutils is indeed feature frozen, that's aimed at changing how we approach the larger scale evolution of the packaging ecosystem, it doesn't mean we won't fix bugs and usability issues. (While we may be slow sometimes, that's a general core developer availability issue, rather than a distutils specific problem)
