Thanks for telling me!

I am not able to find this config file nor did I find
a way (at least not in  man man) how to specify it.

Is the possibility of having a configuration file
mentioned in your  man man  content?  I can only
see the  manpath.config  there but no  man.config.

Perhaps my  man  is just too old?  :-D
For me  man -V  produces this:
