They were not expected to work: IIRC `git help whatever` just calls
`man git-whaveter` internally, so you have to tinker with the MANPATH
environment variable (rean the man(1) manual page).

Try running that same command while having the GIT_TRACE variable in
$ export GIT_TRACE=1
$ git clone https://...
In this case higher-level Git tools will print out what lower-level
tools they call.
And you did not tell if `git init` works for you. It's a major command
and it's not supposed to access any remote repository so being able to
run it successfully would be a good sign.
