Policy, 12.1:

| Each program, utility, and function should have an associated manual
| page included in the same package. It is suggested that all
| configuration files also have a manual page included as well. Manual
| pages for protocols and other auxiliary things are optional.

Why are you surprised? If it's because you prefer info, you can just
provide a minimal manpage and refer to the info documentation in it.
