Hydro disc brakes on bicycles are self-adjusting, they do that
themselves by their design, so the cyclist doesn't have to do

This is what I think self-something should mean, you don't do
it as a user or operator, the thing does it for you, by and
to itself.

Self-learning AI algorithm. And so on. It learns to play
checkers by playing it one zillion times against another
instance of itself. And so forth.

Emacs maybe provide certain things to do documentation and
that's great but it doesn't do the documentation. So it is
misleading (or even untrue) IMO.
