Historically, man-pages has primarily documented glibc + syscalls, but there's nothing firm about that. It's more been about limited time resources and the fact that glibc is the most widely used libc. I'd have no objection to musl-specific notes in the man-pages. Perhaps a patch to libc(7) would be a good place to start.
