Bug in documentation for eq? ?

I read

     Numbers and characters are not equal to any other object, but the
     problem is they're not necessarily `eq?' to themselves either.
     This is even so when the number comes directly from a variable,

          (let ((n (+ 2 3)))
            (eq? n n))       => *unspecified*

I think that is wrong.  A variable reference can't really be anything
except eq? to itself in my opinion.  As long as a Scheme object is not
being manipulated in any manner, it should stay eq? to itself.

What am I missing?
