As R. David pointed out, this is fixed in Python 3 by emphasizing configparser is designed to hold strings at all times. Changing this would break lots of existing code out there. So, sadly, #wontfix.

Thank you for your report though. If you find the documentation is misleading, create a change for that and we'll submit it.
