Yes, and perms are mostly irrelevant, cause I install from elevated prompt.
# icacls . | iconv -f CP866
Successfully processed 1 files; Failed processing 0 files
# acl .
# file: .
# owner: anrdaemon
# group: None

Turned out, I can easily reproduce it by
> # rm -rf /var/cache/man && mkdir /var/cache/man && touch /var/cache/man/index.db && mandb
> Purging old database entries in /usr/share/man...
> mandb: can't update index cache /var/cache/man/2070: No such file or directory

It creates CACHEDIR.TAG and cat1 cat3 cat5 cat6 cat7 cat8 subdirectories but
that's about it. Nothing else is saved and the index.db is unmodified.
