That is a current man page, documenting the current code. You are using an
older MPlayer version, presumably via distribution. The man page installed
on your system should not mention this option.
The MPlayer version available in Ubuntu 14.04 does not support the -pausing
option, and the installed man page does not know about this option either.
Always use the right tool for the job.
