I have no answer from coreutils maintainers on this subject so far.
So it\'s probably a documentation typo.

I hope it\'s not a typo. I think the intention to have --target-dierctory
option in coreutils where possible is very good; it makes using coreutils with
xargs simpler.

Finally I\'ve got written confirmation from one of coreutils maintainers (Jim
Meyering):

I planned to do it when I implemented it for those other
commands, but never got around to it, then forgot :-)

Thanks for pointing it out.
I\'ve just added it to the TODO list.
