Hmmm....  I loaded tramp.texi into a buffer, then did "M-x
texinfo-format-buffer RET" and it halted midway with the cursor on a
line saying "@macro trampver{}" and with the comment "@macro is not
handled by texinfo".

In Emacs terminology, you visited the file in a buffer (via `find-file').
The term "load" specifically means to load an Emacs Lisp source (.el) or
byte-compiled (.elc) file.
