bug#34055: 27.0.50; Documentation of `visited-file-modtime' is inconsist

In the Elisp manual (info "(elisp)Modification Time") the
documentation of `visited-file-modtime' is inconsistent with its doc

The Elisp manual says

  If the buffer is not visiting a file, this function returns −1.

However, it appears (IIUC) that the function only returns -1 when
the buffer _is_ visiting a file and that file does not exist; the
doc string has it right.

[This was reported in [1] but it remains unfixed in current master.]
