Or... not.  Now I'm even more confused than when I started.

unicorn:/var/tmp/bash/bash-5.1/doc$ ls -l builtins.[01]
-rw-r--r-- 1 greg greg 143241 Nov 18  2020 builtins.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 greg greg    873 Mar 15  2018 builtins.1

That builtins.1 file clearly does not contain the ROFF source code for
the content of builtins.0.  Which makes me wonder where, exactly, the
content of builtins.0 came from.

builtins.1 also contains this line, which I do not understand:

.TH BASH_BUILTINS 1 "2004 Apr 20" "GNU Bash 5.0"

The version number and the date stamp do not match each other at all.
