Yes, if we can find a non-clunky wording that does that. The current wording does seem to misleadingly suggest that the delegation to `__round__` only happens for the two-argument version of round.

How about just:

> For a general Python object ``number``, ``round`` delegates to
> ``number.__round__``.
