I googled "disable programmable completion bash" and the first result
is: 
<https://superuser.com/questions/421397/disable-bashs-programmable-autocompletion-based-on-command>,
which lists the shopt to disable it. The second result also mentions
it: 
<https://superuser.com/questions/45578/how-do-i-turn-off-or-adjust-the-clever-tab-completion-in-ubuntu-programmable-co>.

The manual is not supposed to have direct answers to all the possible
questions the user might have. That would just make the manual larger
(it is huge already) and unreadable.
