I think the documentation is muddled for this, too.
(Actually, that's why I started by checking the behavior on bash, bash
--posix, zsh, dash, and the busybox shell. I wanted to see what existing
practice was. That way, if the documentation didn't describe the behavior,
I'd know whether it was a bash issue or a bash-man-page issue. If you have
easy access to an AIX system, it'd be nice to test this on ksh, too.)
