Not precisely, but note this (especially the last sentence):

          This string is a pathname that will be prepended to each of
          the matches formed by the given WORDS together with any
          prefix specified by the -p option to form a complete filename
          for testing.  Hence it is only useful if combined with the -f
          flag, as the tests will not otherwise be performed.

There isn't any -f option in your compadd, so the -W option is just
confusing.  Also you've said that -p and -W are the same string, which
by my reading means that if there *were* a -f option it would test for
the file "$dir/$dir/..." which can't possibly be what you mean.
