A user might use a prefix arg, regardless.  Telling her
that in this case the prefix arg is ignored (has nothing
to do with this case, in your words) lets her know not
to expect something; that is, this is a special case
where the prefix arg descriptions do not apply.

I haven't seen the changes you made.  If it's clear now
that the prefix-arg descriptions do not apply in this
case then great.
