This is because Gnus now sets buffer-save-without-query for the dribble
file. This is desired behavior and hence only a documentation bug. The
doc-string for save-some-buffers should say something like

"Asking can be disabled for a buffer by setting the buffer-local
variable `buffer-save-without-query' to a non-nil value."
