some man pages show incorrect driver locations
Some man pages in section 7d have errors in the filename for the driver.
For example, ieee1394 has
where the / ought to be outside the  so it applies to sparcv9 as well.
Some, like usba, say sparcv rather than sparcv9
Some, like usba, miss the leading / on the path.
And it would be a good opportunity to start clearing up the 32-bit remnants.

There's useful information embedded in the location; not just the driver name but type, sometimes the note of platform-specific changes. And sometimes the configuration file is useful to know where to look.
Not so universally critical that we need to make a policy that every man page include it, but not so useless that it's worth eradicating.
What we shouldn't do is have information that's factually incorrect.
