There is an undocumented, third argument, $args, into user_can() function as written in Roles and Capabilities section of Plugin Handbook.

It's the same of current_user_can() (already documented).

Thanks for the patch, @mariovalney.

This is very closely related to #37402, because the third parameter is actually variadic.
