Yes, I see that now, thanks.  I think some additional examples in the
zoneadm man page that use specific brand options would be helpful and in
the brands.5 man page additional explanation as to which of the things
in the See Also section are brand instances and also that these brand
instance man pages contain information on zoneadm subcommand arguments
that are associated with that particular brand.
