(I'm going through old bug reports that have unfortunately not gotten
any responses.)

I'm unable to reproduce this bug in Emacs 27, but I'm not sure I
understand the instructions.  You say "Select groff, then groff.1".

I tried

M-x woman RET groff RET

and got a properly formatted groff man page.

I then tried

M-x woman RET groff.1 RET

and got "no match", because groff.1 isn't a valid choice here.
