staff-space doesn't seem to work as documented

In the PDF documentation for 2.12.3 and the online documentation for 2.13.16 it gives the syntax for reducing staff spacing as:

\override StaffSymbol #'staff-space = #1.5

If I use this syntax, I get an error:

error: syntax error, unexpected '{'
\new Staff \with {\override StaffSymbol #'staff-space = #'1.5}
{ c'' c'' c'' c'' }

If I use a syntax with parentheses (guessed by trial and error):

\override StaffSymbol #'staff-space = #'( . 1.5)

I compiles and runs successfully.

Code snippets are available if required.

Is this a bug in the documentation?
