Division polynomials just a function of x ! [closed]

I evaluated Divison polynomials using

E = EllipticCurve([A,B])
g = E.division_polynomial(k)

The results i noticed were just function of $x$ , In theory i saw that division polynomials for k even depends on y. In there something I am unable to notice.

For example : E.division_polynomial(k) returned 4*x^3 + 4*A*x + 4*B but theory says it is 2y. From this one can get a intuition that may be we are squaring them.

But E.division_polynomial(8) returned a degree $33$ polynomial which means that clearly we are not squaring things.

Are we replacing $y$ by $x^2+ax+b$ everywhere ?

Could you just read the documentation: E.division_polynomial?
