Perhaps this text fragment was misinterpreted; the stable-2.0 docs have
been updated in git to the same thing, but the master HTML docs have
been pushed to the web site.  Note that in:

I've removed the tutorial-like section on smobs, and that later in the
API reference the SMOB documentation links to "Foreign Object Memory

Does that cover your needs?
