Making auto-fill-function non-nil is effectively the same as enabling
auto-fill-mode.

I don't see a documentation bug, as the behaviour you see is documented
in both docstrings and the Elisp manual.

The docstring of newline says:

  Calls `auto-fill-function' if the current column number is greater
  than the value of `fill-column' and ARG is nil.

The docstring of auto-fill-function says:

  It is called after self-inserting any character specified in
  the `auto-fill-chars' table.

The docstring of self-insert-command says:

  After insertion, `internal-auto-fill' is called if
  `auto-fill-function' is non-nil and if the `auto-fill-chars' table has
  a non-nil value for the inserted character.

So I don't see a bug here.

Thanks,
