It is you who are being silly in your bug report, you are not being
very clear.  What exactly do you mean?

GNU projects don't use man pages as their official source for
information, --help and the info page is used for this.

I do not see any such reference in the tool-bar-mode docstring, both
for the function and variable.  Please be more clear.

When reporting a bug report report what you are seeing and why you
think it is a bug, you haven't done this.  Please do it next time so
that we can stop playing these guessing games and waste time.
