If you do C-h k C-x you also get a prompt, it only looks different.
In the same way that C-h k C-x C-c (say) gives you info, C-h k M-g d
(say) will give you info.

The magic behind M-g is only the prompt.  It is called minimenu or
keymenu or menuprompt or something like this -- I forgot the name of
the feature.
