Thanks for pointing out that my manual was out of date.  Looks to me like I needed to delete the stock org manual before the package-based one would show up in info.

Rasmus is correct. Vanilla Mardown doesn't provide any way to specify
a title or an author in a document.

Of course, if there's some standard way to do this, we can extend
"ox-md.el" accordingly. The same goes for table of contents, generated
as HTML for the time being.

You are looking at an outdated manual. This change was introduced
2 years ago (commit 604b93892caa8a646ced1ac7089461614bb9bffa). You may
want to search ML archives for the discussion about it.

You can probably use something like

 #+TITLE: {{{input-file}}}

to get the old behaviour back.
