There appears to be no entry for rsyslog in section 3 of the manual.

> Find the attached images for more description.

The image seems to show a man page for syslog(3), not rsyslog.

This should be either reassigned to the man-pages component or closed as NOTABUG.

I also cannot find the reproduction. I would propose closing as NOTABUG.
