So far, I learned that 'man' interprets two commands by default as a sub-command  but I do not know how to tell from a man page that it is for a sub-command like 'git add' instead of a command called git-add. I do not believe there is an annotation for it, although there probably should be. Unless someone has a better idea, I think we have parse the output generated by 'groff -man -Tascii'. Similar to man's strategy  a man page would be deemed to relate to a sub-command when the first two words in the synopsis, connected by a hyphen, are the same as the file name.
