No, this is not true:

$ ls -la /usr/lib/man-db/man
-rwsr-xr-x    1 man      root        82848 Apr  4  2000 /usr/lib/man-db/man

This is the actual man binary (/usr/bin/man is only a wrapper, did not
examine closer what it does, but it has no setu/gid bit set), after a
plain Debian 2.2 potato install.

After the last of 16 mounting screws has been removed from an access
cover, it will be discovered that the wrong access cover has been removed.
