Follow-up Comment #1:

I'm not sure which "comments in the source code" you're looking at, but that's
not usually a good way to learn the behavior of the software: instead you
should look at the user's manual:
https://www.gnu.org/software/make/manual/html_node/Reference.html (first

No version of make has ever used backslashes to escape make variable
references: you double the '$'; e.g., $$(foo)
