A quick update on this bug.

ChDir, CurDir and ChDrive documentation have been updated for 7.2:

This was done by [1] to explain that these methods are deprecated and may be removed in the future.
[1] https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=129114 (see comment #3)

What I suggest is to add a note recommending the use of the ScriptForge FileSystem service for all of these soon-to-be-deprecated functions.

As for CompatibilityMode no changes have been made so far. I just don't know exactly what aspects need to be updated in the help page.
