The only thing I see with respect to '\\' is:

  Paragraphs are separated by at least one empty line.  If you need to
  enforce a line break within a paragraph, use ‘\\’ at the end of a line.

Which doesn't answer the question of why org-add-note (etc) added it the
end of the first line of a Note which lead to my confusion. It's easy to
assume, if Org is adding '\\' to the first line of the Note and the Note
is a unit, then this is there to prevent folding/wrapping in the Note
when Org does "something" (but what?).
