???  Well, maybe it is not the /documentation/ of --vi-keys, but
in the manual I cannot find any other description of what keys
are supposed to do what in "vi mode".  In the 6.3 version of the
manual, there were still many keystrokes that were described with
"vi-like".  Most of them are gone now (which is good, because it
was a mess); some of them remain in 8.2.

But this is what it says at the start of section 14.1:

14.1 'infokey' format

Here is an example '.infokey' file which specifies the key bindings that
are activated by the '--vi-keys' option to Info (*note --vi-keys::).

     g       beginning-of-node
     G       end-of-node
     \mb     beginning-of-node
     \me     end-of-node
     j       next-line
     k       prev-line

So... how is that not a description of the effect of --vi-keys?
