From the code, this arg is simply passed to os.mkdirs() here:
https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/e6e34e45222b9c7a63ba92386612acf768082ba0/Lib/shutil.py#L450

os.mkdir is documented here: https://docs.python.org/3/library/os.html#os.makedirs

and says just "If exist_ok is False (the default), an FileExistsError is raised if the target directory already exists."

So I agree that the sentence you highlighted can be improved.

Would you like to submit a patch?
