I believe this is intended behavior for mandoc, at least with regard
to terminal output. Consult the "ASCII Output" and "Locale Output"
sections of mandoc(1), and you shall see:

In other words, mandoc output is not for direct consumption by the
terminal. Try using `-T html` instead -- that should tell you whether
mandoc has really interpreted the thing.
