As it is written in the documentation, the second value computed is the
standard deviation of the _mean_, not the standard deviation of the
_population_, which is what you are computing. The standard deviation of
the mean is: std(w) / sqrt(len(w))

This is trivial, just compute the avg_neighbour_corr with the reversed

  avg_neighbour_corr(GraphView(g, reversed=True), "in", "out")
