You're easily confused.

The default dhcp client on Debian is dhclient which is provided by
isc-dhcp-client, previously dhcp3-client.

I doubt that dhcp3-client has ever provided dhcpcd, even in 2008. So
that debianist notes page is incorrect. I'd trust Bob if I were you;
especially since it's MORONIC to define an interface in
"/etc/network/interfaces" and then advise a user to acquire an ip
address with a dhcp client rather than with ifup or service.
