remotepass with % must be escaped?

Hi all!

I have a password for an offlineimap account that includes the percent
sign (%). Apparently, OI asks me to double it:

% --> %%

lest an exception is raised. Indeed, doubling works (only one % is
read). Is this feature documented anywhere?

Thanks. Cheers,
