Another data point from current official release; instead of:

splitting the man table using:

behaves the same as if the table was not split: fine on utf8,
disappears on other output devices/file formats.

I'm not quite sure what you're reporting.
It sounds like it _might_ be this bug affecting tbl output on nroff
...which, fortunately, is fixed in groff 1.23.0 (as of today, at release
candidate 3).
If that isn't it, can you supply me with a malfunctioning specimen, and
describe what you expected?

Just another data point for issues with long -man page multi-"page" tables not rendering on non-tty devices/file formats.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis              Calgary, Alberta, Canada
