Feature, not a bug. :) Try browsing your man directories and view the 
man pages. (I actually use the mc viewer as my man pager.)

Press F8 to switch to raw mode. Note, that saves state, so if you try 
viewing a groff source file later it will be raw. You'd have to press 
F8 again to toggle it back.

The groff feature has been there for many years. I agree, it's an 
annoyance when viewing logrotate files, but it's minor and the benefit 
is worthwhile.
