It changed after wheezy.

Wheezy's man page says:

       fdisk  does  not  understand GUID partition tables (GPTs) and it is not
       designed for large partitions.  In these cases, use the  more  advanced
       GNU parted(8).

Jessie's man page says:

       fdisk  is a dialog-driven program for creation and manipulation of par‐
       tition tables.  It understands GPT, MBR, Sun,  SGI  and  BSD  partition
       tables.

A lot of people are still using cached knowledge from pre-jessie days.
