emacs -Q

(defun rn (prompt &optional default) (message "RN"))
(defalias 'read-number 'rn)

C-h f read-number

,----
| read-number is an alias for `rn' in `subr.el'.
| 
| (read-number PROMPT &optional DEFAULT)
| 
| Not documented.
`----

It is incorrect to refer to `subr.el' at all.  There is nothing in
`subr.el' that is related to the current definition of `read-number'.
This misleads users.  Better not to send users anywhere than to send
them to the wrong definition of the function.
