The docstring gives the impression of handling the following case:


;;;;;;;; ( <=== This is skipped

)<-- Point

When point is at the position marked above, the correct paren will be
matched if the value of this variable is nil. Useful. However, when I
set it to `t' it still skips the one in the comment.

I tested in the *scratch* buffer.
