Sorry, this was my misunderstanding, from a too-cursory
look at the Elisp manual.

All manuals (including Elisp) have varying indentation,
for different things.  It's not possible, in any general
way, to rely on indentation level to determine whether
some content is code-like, i.e., deserves a fixed-pitch font.
