That's because it's an autoloaded function that's not loaded yet.
So Emacs has no idea what the function looks, it just knows that it's
a function (and an interactive one at that) and that if someone calls
it, it can find it in `sort'.

I.e. you'll need to load `sort' (f.ex. by calling the function) before
the arglist will be displayed.  But I agree that since Emacs knows
the docstring, it might as well give you the arglist.

I think this could be fixed by hacking autoloads.el.  I'll keep it
in my TODO file.
