Yes, which IMO is a mistake.  :(

A trivial example -- @insertcopying.  Even if it happens inside a
   @end iftex
section, texi2html complains that it doesn't understand this

The docs are filled with tons of such warnings.  I'd love to have
them all cleaned up (quite possibly by sending bug reports and
pestering the maintainers of texi2pdf, makeinfo, and texi2html),
but that's so far down on my priority list it isn't funny.

This might be a good task for a Frog, but any Frog that's on linux
is probably doing more advanced tasks that shouldn't be
