These 'django-admin.py <command name>' titles in the documentation are generated automatically (with a custom role for the Sphinx tool) starting from the <command name> value. It was decided back then that such facility would prefix it with 'django-admin.py '.

Because of this, all the management commands in that document have with such a title even those commands whose execution would make more sense in the context of an existing project i.e. it is easier to invoke them by using manage.py (e.g. collectstatic, startapp, syncdb, runserver, ...)

This isn't wrong because, as the notes at the top of such document describe, it is possible to use these management commands by invoking django-admin.py with the --settings switch or by specifying the DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE environment variable. Also, these notes include this paragraph:

The command-line examples throughout this document use django-admin.py to be consistent, but any example can use manage.py just as well.
