Yes, and perms are mostly irrelevant, cause I install from elevated prompt.

/var/cache/man
# icacls . | iconv -f CP866
. daemon2\anrdaemon:(F)
  daemon2\None:(RX)
  Everyone:(RX)
  CREATOR-OWNER:(OI)(CI)(IO)(F)
  CREATOR-GROUP:(OI)(CI)(IO)(RX)
  Everyone:(OI)(CI)(IO)(RX)

Successfully processed 1 files; Failed processing 0 files

/var/cache/man
# acl .
# file: .
# owner: anrdaemon
# group: None
user::rwx
group::r-x
other::r-x
default:user::rwx
default:group::r-x
default:other::r-x

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
> Processing manual pages under /usr/share/man...
> mandb: can't create index cache /var/cache/man/2070: Resource temporarily unavailable

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.
