That's not always true.  I personally committed the change in the
manual page of sdiff(1) both to -current and -stable, to make sure
that the incomplete, lacking manpage has minimal changes from the
vendor version but *does* point to the texinfo docs of diff/sdiff
which are more complete than the manpage.

GNU people do hate manpages annd avoid them some times :(
