The runqueue(9) manpage references and describes choosethread() as part of itself.
So, FreeBSD Kernel Developer's Manual should (m)link choosethread(9) to runqueue(9).

Btw, it already links (non-existent) chooseproc(9) to runqueue(9).
The chooseproc(9) routine is replaced with choosethread(9) circa 2001.
The chooseproc mlink should probably be de-attached as well.
Try to `man choosethread`.
No manual entry for choosethread
