No.  Help can (and does, at least on GNU Emacs) call up info pages.
That's OK, because Help is only used inside Emacs.

Texinfo is multitargeted (hardcopy, Emacs Info mode, standalone Info,
and HTML, at least); we really don't want to put features in that are
specific to a single target.

However, you could easily bind `describe-function' to a mouse gesture,
and that would pick up the function at point.
