I'm not sure why there would be an expectation that their would be.
Fedora doesn't use Grub2. There are many possible bootloaders that
could be on a system. Do we mention any of them by name anywhere?
We do have this just above the snippet you quote:

"You may have a boot loader installed on your system already. An
operating system may install its own preferred boot loader, or you may
have installed a third-party boot loader.If your boot loader does not
recognize Linux partitions, you may not be able to boot Fedora"

How do we make it any clearer than that?
