Text "Hold down "Control", or "Command" on a Mac, to select more than one." in 1.6 even though it's indicated Django does not do this anymore

I just upgraded my app to 1.6 and am seeing instances of "Hold down "Control", or "Command" on a Mac, to select more than one." everywhere I use a a ModelMultipleChoiceField, even though the docs explicitly say this text isn't supposed to be added anymore. I also see code to do this, here:

The release notes read:

HTML rendering of model form fields corresponding to ManyToManyField ORM model fields used to get the hard-coded sentence

Hold down “Control”, or “Command” on a Mac, to select more than one.
(or its translation to the active locale) imposed as the help legend shown along them if neither model nor form help_text attribute was specified by the user (or appended to, if help_text was provided.)

This happened always, possibly even with form fields implementing user interactions that don’t involve a keyboard and/or a mouse and was handled at the model field layer.

Starting with Django 1.6 this doesn’t happen anymore.
