If there for example is something like this

then a defstruct selector function `ert-stats-selector' is defined. It

Indeed, defstruct should put a `definition-name' property on the names
it constructs. Like

(put 'ert-stats-selector 'definition-name 'ert-stats)
Yes, something like that. Is 'definition-name special in some way or
could/should it be something else?

Try C-h f again after adding the property above.

Hey, that is the black box game again ... ;-)

Yes, you are right, but I do not understand how it works. I guess C-h f searches the buffer for the "definition-name".

So this looks like more or less a bug.

I tried to look at defstruct to see where to add 'definition-name. There seems to be 4 uses of `defun' and `defsubst*'. Should not all this 4 be adding 'definition-name?
