True, but still this is a common experience and WRI could easily add a More
Information note on the Abort page (where new users might logically look):

"Abortion of an evaluation may be effectuated from the Evaluation Menu. This
aborts Kernel evaluation but does not stop any pending Front End

There are improvements that can be made to the documentation.
But, it is clearly impractical for the documentation for each
individual command to be stand alone documentation that covers
all aspect of that command without needing to look at any other
documentation for Mathematica. A direct consequence of this is
users unfamiliar with Mathematica will not have a complete
understanding of a command by reading just the documentation
page for that command.
