--- Comment #2 from Mateusz Piotrowski <0mp at FreeBSD.org> ---
This is expected behavior. Please see the description of the -s flag in the
man(1) manual page. It explains why "re" first matches the re(1) utility
instead of the re(4) driver.

Also, remember that you can always force man(1) to open a manual page from a
specific section. In your case it would look like this:

    $ man 4 re

Hope it helps :)
