You may find this tutorial slightly more helpful. But you're right that this is not explicitly stated in the plot documentation as such. I've opened Ticket 19486 for this issue. Note that historically plotting was carried out through

sage: X = something()
sage: plot(X)
sage: X.plot()

where the latter two commands were the same, e.g. for symbolic expressions, though even there this syntax is just assumed by example.
