Bug in help docs?

Kenny Stauffer
The help for CTRL-\_CTRL-N says: "When focus is in a terminal window, CTRL-\ CTRL-N goes to Normal mode for only one command, see |t_CTRL-\_CTRL-N|."

The part about "for only one command" doesn't seem to be true. Vim stays in Terminal-Normal mode for multiple normal mode commands (yank, mark) and ex commands (:checktime). The help for t_CTRL-\_CTRL-N does not mention "for only one command." Am I failing to understand what help is trying to tell me? Or is this a bug in the docs?

Thanks,
Kenny

This is a mistake in the help.  If you follow the tag then it just
mentions going to Normal mode.
