First full paragraph on under "New Concept: Awaitable:
In the paragraph starting with, "However, end-user code does not always need to await a Task," there is the claim that "If you don't expect to cancel the task or wait for it, there is no need to keep the `Task` object returned from `create_task`. Creating the task is enough to schedule the coroutine to run."
