Bug in documentation for `load'?

It appears to me that the docs for `load' are wrong (both in 1.8 and

 -- Scheme Procedure: load filename [reader]
     Load FILENAME and evaluate its contents in the top-level
     environment.  The load paths are not searched.

The last sentence seems to be wrong, as `load' is actually

% guile                  
guile> load
#<procedure load-module (filename . reader)>

% ~/.system/stow/guile-1.9.12/bin/guile
scheme@(guile-user)> load
$1 = #<procedure load-module (filename #:optional reader)>

So, AFAICS, `load' uses the load paths (and only the load paths).
