The documentation should be fixed; it's a remnant of GTK+ 2.x.

You should file a bug here:

You can keep using the deprecated API, *if* you need to keep existing
code working; if you are writing new code, though, you shouldn't pack
non-activatable widgets inside the action area. The action area is for
actions; if your widget does not have an action associated to it, then
it should go in the content area.
