This looks to be an oversight. The cautionary-style property was deprecated
in Release 2.11.5 but it seems the manual was not updated.  Thanks for pointing
this out.

The correct override is

\version "2.19.20"

  \relative c'' {
      \accidentalStyle neo-modern-cautionary
      \override AccidentalCautionary #'font-size = #-2
      cis16 cis d cis    cis cis d d    d d d d     cis c c c

Yes, the example above shows this.
