No.  It is just like `minibuffer-completion-table',
`minibuffer-completion-predicate', and `minibuffer-completion-confirm'.

It is not used only for completion - it is even more general.  That explains why
it is not introduced along with the `minibuffer-completion-*' vars in node
`Completion Commands'.

But it is no less a variable that programmers can use in their code.  This is
the Emacs-Lisp manual.  This variable is an important variable to understand
when dealing with minibuffer input.
