It can, most often in the CVSROOT/modules file, sometimes in the *info
files. But if there is information there, it is likely to have been
added manually at some point.

It can also have information in CVSROOT/history and CVSROOT/val-tags.
History would be historical data used by the 'cvs history' command.
val-tags is a list of tags used in the module.
