My system has quite a few DIAGNOSTIC sections in section 4:

$ fgrep  DIAGNOSTICS /usr/share/man/man4/* | wc -l
      72

I'm not entirely sure you are real.

it's an easy mistake to make. but i think the text is clear enough,
since just before it, it says:

         The SYNOPSIS section of each network interface entry gives
         a sample specification of the related drivers for use in
         providing a system description to the config(8) program.

in that context, i don;t think we need to spell out the implied "of each
network interface".
