They are likely not to be significant; you just seem to have a different
version of the man page.
If you type
PAGER=cat man cat
do you see a coypright symbol in the "Copyright (C) 2004 Free Software
Foundation, Inc." line (i.e., in the place where I have written "(C)"
here)? If you type
do you see a copyright symbol? If you type
do you see a small hyphen (i.e. something somewhat smaller than what you
get when you hit the - key)?
If your answer to the second and third question is "yes", try to pipe the
output of each command to a pager, e.g.
printf \\342\\200\\220\\n | less
In place of "less", try each pager which you also tried with "man".
