I see what you mean.

As I see it, mount(8) references *acl(1) because it has an acl option and then,
it is extremely related. comm(1), cmp(1) and diff(1) all show differences in
tail(1) and sort(1) are not cross-referenced because they do completely
unrelated things: one shows files (in different ways) the other one sorts
streams (using different criteria).

In SEE ALSO we can reference other utils, but not other utils with specific
flags. I think it would be confusing for a user to look at rev(1) and find
references to a sorting utility and a file showing one.

So the problem is actually how to make the sort flag that you are looking for
more accessible.

Would apropos Fl=reverse work for you?
