 There is no mistake in the documentation cited by you:
 avformat_new_stream() just uses this AVCodec to initialize the (now
 removed) public AVCodecContext

 And your second quote does not apply to avformat_new_stream() at all, but
 rather says what the user should do after having called
 avformat_new_stream(). It also deals with AVCodecParameters and not with
 an AVCodecContext at all.
