The manual background is white, so it couldn’t show the battery in white.
Maybe be it would have been more clear if the manual showed a screenshot of the back of the camera.
There's no reason they ciouldn't show the battery indicator correctly in the manual. If it needs a black background, just print a black rectangle to show it on. We're talking "correctable oversight" here.
It is being illustraed correctly in the manual. The manual shows multiple bars to indicate a full charge, fewer bars to indicate less than a full charge, and no bars to indicate no charge, which is exactly what the camera does.
If you want to get technical, the manual is showing you how a top LCD display might display battery charge.

For the T5i (and probably other bodies) the LCD screen display can be changed from black with white to white background with black.
