That description is quite misleading.  You are not "spreading the text
of a footnote over more than one line" but are rather creating a markup
_list_ containing multiple markups.  Then you call \footnote with this
markup list as last argument, and since \footnote expects a single
markup, LilyPond creates one \footnote call for every element in the
markup list.

That's quite the same mechanism as the one used for things like
\color #red \justified-lines ...
and totally business as usual.

Yes, that's exactly like it should be.
