As is revealed by following the hyperlink, the character references it is
referring to are those (such as &#x23;) used in XML, not those (such as #x5B)
used in production rules.

It might be clearer to say something like: "Note: when regular expressions are
written in an XML document, for example in the value attribute of the
xs:pattern element, non-ASCII characters can be represented using XML entity or
character references. For this reason, the regular expression syntax does not
provide any way of representing characters using octal or hexadecimal character
codes. The syntax defined here assumes that XML entity and character references
have already been expanded."
