We use \Sexpr in only a couple of places currently:  in the NEWS.Rd 
files (which are treated differently than other .Rd files), and in the 
tools package where it is illustrated (see ?tools::Rd2HTML; the last few 
lines of the note are generated using \Sexpr).

If you put together a simple .Rd file that shows the difference you're 
seeing, I'll take a look.
