"You missed one, Stephen, but it is quite obscure. The \ operator is vectorized as .\ also known as ldivide; "
No, as your own example clearly shows, the vectorize operator does not change that operator:
ans = 'a\b'
You missed looking at the output of your own example (above), which clearly shows that vectorize does NOT add a period in front of the backslash character.
You missed reading my previous comment, Walter Roberson, where I hinted that I had already looked at the code. And where I stated that that vectorize could be "trivially replaced with one regexprep call".
I did not "miss" that operator, because what I wrote replicates the behavior of vectorize.

A warning without an explanation is not a real warning. I say you just ignore it.

Scroll to the bottom of the vectorize page and place a star rating which will allow you to type and submit feedback.
That feedback is received by MathWorks Gnomes which are never seen nor heard but visit the MathWorks documentation team at night while they are sleeping and whisper selected suggestions into their ears to manipulate their dreams. Occassionally this causes them to wake up with a Eureka moment that leads to changes in the documentation.
