In lintian itself with the --info switch (or config option), and in

% lintian-explain-tags -t wrong-path-for-interpreter
E: wrong-path-for-interpreter
N:   The interpreter you used is installed at another location on Debian systems.
N:   Note that, as a particular exception, Debian Policy § 10.4 states that Perl scripts should use /usr/bin/perl directly and not /usr/bin/env, etc.
N:   Please refer to Scripts (Section 10.4) in the Debian Policy Manual for details.
N:   Visibility: error
N:   Show-Always: no
N:   Check: scripts

BWT: The lintian manpage still says:

-i, --info
    Print  explanatory information about each problem discovered in
    addition to the lintian error tags. To print a long tag
    description without running lintian, see lintian-explain-tags(1)
    or check the website at https://lintian.debian.org.
