Your understanding is correct. Please update the docs. However, it has been an old goal to unify this, i.e. make all toolkits behave as Gtk.

As far as I can tell, the result of (frame-height) on GNU/Linux
depends on the X toolkit on the following way:

gtk        : excludes both tool-bar and menu-bar
motif      : includes tool-bar (height = 2?), excludes menu-bar
lucid      : like motif
no toolkit : includes both tool-bar and menu-bar (height = 1)
-nw        : includes menu-bar

The motif and lucid values seems inconsistent with the Elisp manual:

    These values include the internal borders, and windows' scroll
    bars and fringes (which belong to individual windows, not to the
    frame itself), but do not include menu bars or tool bars (except
    when using X without an X toolkit).

I am happy to update the documentation, if the current behaviour (and
my understanding of it) is correct, or not going to be changed. (It is
rather confusing though.)

Some previous discussion:


and to some extent bug #25
