It is noted in Here Documents (and Here Strings is a variant of here documents). And there is: No parameter expansion, command substitution, arithmetic expansion, or pathname expansion is performed on word.

This is not true for here strings (infact, it wouldn't make sense for here strings to disallow for example parameter expansion).

I see the relation to here documents. I just tried to point out that either thze documentation or the behaviour should be revised.
