(First time contributor here seeking guidance) I see that this problem of automatically linking to the unintended page has occurred in other parts of the docs and has been handled in another way - In Doc/library/functions.rst, local targets are used with replacement texts-

unintended linking code- :func:`dict`
local target code- |func-dict|_ 
and this substitution is added-  .. |func-dict| replace:: ``dict()``

Would this be the preferred way of solving this? I tried this change and it achieves the correct linking for me
