vsync with glFinish

I'm concerned about the accuracy of this statement:

On Windows, apart from rendering the picture at least twice as fast as the monitor's refresh rate (per the rules of the Sampling Theorem), SwapBuffers() combined with glFinish() is the only method supported on modern hardware to perfectly achieve vertical synchronization (vsync).

I have never seen this stated anywhere. I am not aware of any reason for a SwapBuffers operation to have to be followed by glFinish in order to vsync. The point of swap interval is to not have to do anything special (other than specifying the swap interval) to get vsync support. Do you have some source for this information?
