Follow-up Comment #2, bug #52457 (project groff):

The default hyphenation value for the man macros is 14; your preferences may
be defeating this default, making this (arguably) not a bug.

>From groff_man(7):

.BI \-rHY= flags
Set hyphenation flags.
Possible values are 1\~to hyphenate without restrictions, 2\~to not
hyphenate the last word on a page, 4\~to not hyphenate the last two
characters of a word, and 8\~to not hyphenate the first two characters
of a word.
These values are additive; the default is\~14.
