I use signature for IDLE call tips, but have never used .bind and subsequent calls.  After understanding the behavior, my question as initial reviewer is whether it is an *implementation* bug.  Perhaps, but not obviously so.

Whether or not it is a design wart serious enough to warrant an design change is a different question, which I am not going to judge.  Maybe there is a reason for the current design we have not thought of.  Or maybe it is an accident too painful to change.

I am convinced that the doc could be better.
