I'm not sufficiently informed about DocTeX to know what's the right
thing to do here.  Changing the code so it only changes the face but
without messing with syntax tables would definitely be simpler.

But one thing catches my attention.  If having the `}` marked as an
end-of-comment "fails scanning for balanced {...} pairs" with the
current setup, wouldn't the same kind of problem appear with

    # \begin{macro}^^A Funny, eh? (

if the `^^A.*` part isn't marked in the syntax as separate?

In which operation does the "fails scanning for balanced {...} pairs"


PS: It would be nicer if AUCTeX could just use the tex-mode.el code
rather the copy&paste it.
