I don't have access to a bash3 anymore, but you're right. It's mentioned
in bash-3.2.48's man page. Maybe there was a bug that prevented it from
working correctly or  is just wrong.

No, the bash 4 only construct is appending:
$ foo&>> bar
Redirs of the form&>, which a *single*>, are fully functional in bash 3.2
I have tested and it looks like this has always worked in bash. Testing
v3.0 on an old FC3 install showed no issues. I can only assume there
must be some bug in it for the comment in  to be made, but until we
strike it, I think there is no need to patch these out.
