It is described in the node "File Locks" in the ELisp manual.

The node "Interlocking" in the user manual, where file locking is
described on the user level, has a cross-reference to the above node
pf ELisp manual.  So I'm unsure how you missed that.

I don't understand this part.  Concretely, what is missing in the doc
string, and why do you think it is necessary to add whatever is
missing?
