OK, I added a clarification in the "comments" section of the manual.

You can't put a comment inside a variable or function reference.  Or rather, you can, but it's not treated as a comment; it's just normal text.  As normal text, commas have their regular effect.

I've retagged this bug as a "Documentation" issue so I'll remember to go through the documentation to see if this can be clarified.

when using inline comments in an $(if ...) or other $(xyz ..., ...) statements, the commas inside the comment are parsed.

$(if $f, \
# heres a comma, getting parsed \
do_sth, \
