bug#12149: 24.1; `C-h f' is worse and worse at telling where a function

(progn
  (defun yes-or-no-p (prompt) (y-or-n-p prompt))
  (describe-function  'yes-or-no-p))

=>

yes-or-no-p is a Lisp function.

(yes-or-no-p PROMPT)

Not documented.

So I seem to be unable to reproduce this bug.  Are you still seeing it?
