Yes. From Policy:
6.4 Accessing the documentation
Former Debian releases placed all additional documentation in
/usr/doc/package. To realize a smooth migration to
/usr/share/doc/package, each package must maintain a symlink
/usr/doc/package that points to the new location of its documentation
And the footnote:
These symlinks will be removed in the future, but they have to be
there for compatibility reasons until all packages have moved and the
policy is changed accordingly.
