In Python 2 [Py_InitModule4][1] optionally allows setting __self__ on module functions, but no module in the standard library actually uses this. It's always None. This is no longer optional with Python 3's [PyModule_Create][2]. Built-in module functions instantiated the normal way can be considered as methods of the module in which they're defined. However, some modules may specially instantiate functions for which __self__ is None, such as codecs.strict_errors.

    >>> codecs.strict_errors.__self__ is None
