IIUC what you are asking for, the relevant markup information simply
isn't present in .info files, so what you are asking for seems

For example, compare

with elisp.info. The latter contains:

   This example creates a hash table whose keys are strings that are
compared case-insensitively.

     (defun case-fold-string= (a b)
       (eq t (compare-strings a nil nil b nil nil t)))

ie, examples are not delimited in any fashion.

So you would first have to get a change in texinfo before this could work.
