That's very strange; on my system, all of those are listed.  (Well, I
did only spot check, but all the ones I checked are present.)  I wonder
if the manpage database on your system is out of date.  Does "man grep"
work for you?

Which line do you consider to be line 4?

Probably could, depending on how simple the *roff code is that people
use in the manpages.  It would probably be successful most of the time
