No, that agrees with me. About two thirds of the way down that page, it says:

  %docdir only directs RPM to mark the specified directory as holding
  documentation. It doesn't direct RPM to package any files in the

> By default the doc, info and man directories are searched for documents.

It means that any files you specify in the %files list that are in directories
marked as %docdir are treated as documentation, which will be excluded if the
package is installed using --excludedocs. This includes manpages, info etc. by
default. However, you still need to include the manpages etc. in the %files list.

If you try commenting out the manpages from the %files list, you'll find that
rpmbuild complains about unpackaged files.
