It actually matches the beginning of a line.  It isn't necessarily
followed by anything, and can be used in alternation, so "at beginning
of line" would be a bit weird. (it implies something else needs to
follow like (seq @bol "foo") -> "at beginning of line, foo").

Adding the @ would be awkward IMHO.
