You're probably reading documentation from someone who's patched
stunnel to support X-Forwarded-For.

Quick google finds the following in some haproxy documentation
above a snippet like yours:

"By default, stunnel does not process HTTP and does not add any
 X-Forwarded-For header, but there is a patch on the official
 haproxy site to provide this feature to recent stunnel versions."

I'd suggest you find and apply that patch if that's the road 
down which you wish to go.
