Was that omitted from groff 1.22.3, or did it get dropped somewhere
in the chain of custody between there and here?

What version of Fedora are you using?  In my Fedora 25 box, that
file does exist.  Here's the list for the entire directory:

  $ ls -AF /usr/share/doc/groff
  examples/  pdf/

It occurs to me that the full groff package set may not have been
installed.  Fedora defaults to loading only the package
"groff-base" so that man pages can be displayed.  To actually use
groff for any other purpose, the packages "groff", "groff-doc",
"groff-perl", and "groff-X11" have to be installed.  Annoying, but
there it is.

"dnf provides */*" tells me that this should be provided by the
"groff-doc" RPM.
