That doesn't sound accurate to me.  The Debian Policy Manual, §12.6,
encourages the shipping of examples:


In fact, the bash-doc package contains dozens of examples.  However, I
don't see anything named "rm".  (I'm looking at bash-doc 5.0-4 in Debian
10, "buster".)

I suggest you file a wishlist bug--or update an existing one, as
appropriate--requesting the shipment of the rm loadable as an example if
it's being omitted from the set of artifacts produced by the bash source

Debian may not want to push the loadable into the default configuration
for similar reasons that Chet doesn't as the upstream.  But if it's
shipped, the user can enable it discretionarily.
