How comes? "." works for me the same way as does "./documentroot":
They get translated to an absolute path.

Just to be sure: If you set the document root to "./documentroot" in
the GUI ("File => Properties"), and then reopen that dialog, it will
still be recorded as a relative path?

Maybe it should be noted, that my notebooks don't reside in the home
directory, but on windows drive "E:" (/cygdrive/e/); therefore "."
gets translated like this:
    .  =>  /cygdrive/e/zim-notebooks/Notes/
    ./documentroot  =>  /cygdrive/e/zim-notebooks/Notes/documentroot
