There is more than a decorative difference between lists and vectors!
This does not seem like a doc bug. The transducer flavor of the function fails to meet a well-stated contract.
In the alternative, that it is just a doc bug and it's OK for partition-all to produce lists sometimes and vectors sometimes, based on a subtle configuration of your program, which you might change for computational reasons, with the nature of the returned structures farthest from your mind, thereby inadvertently up-ending all of your downstream conj's... then the doc bug is essentially that the docs have, all these years, over-stated an internal implementation detail by promising lists, and the safe way to consume the result of partition-all would be with sequence functions only.
