It is not, many X11/Xm functions end with the name of the function
flushed to the right, for example.

In fact, the `.TH' command (which AFAIK is mandatory) only forces
something at the very right of the footer. I don't think its a good
thing to add an heuristic on that.

AFAIK, there's always a footer, so I'm 100% sure that the last line
never belongs to any section ; however, it's just IMHO.
