I'm not sure where you're getting that from? Debian policy:
    Each [...] function *should* have an associated manual page
(my emphasis), and doesn't say anything about where the function is in
the file system.

(it would be great if someone were to tweak haddock to generate suitable
manpages, incidentally).

Have you got a reference for that? I can't see it in a quick skim of
and the FHS.
