The pitch to use for \transposition should correspond to the real sound heard when a c' written on the staff is played by the transposing instrument. This pitch is entered in absolute mode, so an instrument that produces a real sound which is one tone higher than the printed music should use \transposition d'.  \transposition should only be used if the pitches are not being entered in concert pitch.

Well, yeah, that _might_ be seen as a little misleading. Certainly, that statement is supposed to say: It does not make sense to use \transposition for concert-pitch music.

But using \transpose a c' \some_concert_pitch_music_for_oboe_damore in effect creates music _not_ in concert pitch, for which then \transposition can (and should) be used, like in the example I gave earlier.
