You won't receive qAppObjectList if you try to call getList method for Sheet as described here: getList method ‒ Qlik Sense
However if you don't capitalize Sheet object type, qAppObjectList will be received as expected.
You're right, It feels like a doc-bug - I will report it.
PS: I think it's "sheet" not "sheets".
