Many man pages contain EXAMPLES sections that only list the GNU options
instead of the standard options of the program. If people don't know how a
program officially works thy tend to copy examples.
BTW: sorry for being off topic but does anybody know how to write a test that
finds that GNU rm is not UNIX-98 compliant?
4.If the current file is a directory, rm will perform actions equivalent to the
XSH specification rmdir() function called with a pathname of the current file
used as the path argument.
... but GNU rm has a -d option that makes it behave like the unlink command.
