What you've expected is probably a TOC like [1]. But the TOC generated
by Mandoc doesn't mean a real table of contents in this case, it's
merely a »hidden« TOC, which enables to click on section headers and
options to generate hyperlinks for that position. If you can open the
link mentioned above, and »Syntax tree output« is on top of the page
displayed in the browser, then this kind of TOC works.
