P command-in-sbin-has-manpage-in-incorrect-section

The command in /sbin or /usr/sbin are system administration commands; their manpages thus belong in section 8, not section 1.

Please check whether the command is actually useful to non-privileged user in which case it should be moved to /bin or /usr/bin, or alternatively the manual page should be moved to section 8 instead, ie. /usr/share/man/man8.

Refer to the hier(7) manual page for details.
