You need to look at XCU 2.11 not just the description of the trap command

Ah, thanks, that makes an exception for when the shell is waiting for a command to complete. It's the same as what bash documents. In that case, I think we can interpret the "when" in the description of the trap command literally except when 2.11 overrides it.
