It might be somewhere else.  For example, the OpenBSD port has it here:


If Fedora doesn't have it at all, i would suspect that might be a bug

No, it is still in groff 1.22.3.
See doc/ in the groff git repo.

I don't think timestamps on *installed* files mean much, except
maybe for debugging how the installation was done on that
particular machine.  Read the fantastic source!
