Are you sure about that. There is nothing along these lines in the nginx
config file that I can see. Also, my reading following that thread you
provided earlier was that Bastien thought the overhead to manage such
lists was too high?

I've now installed the rewrite rules on the server and all these links
are redirecting correctly. Given the amount of Org documentation links
living out there, that's really a good idea.

I did not check it that time, so I can not be really sure. The rules might be lost during migration to deployment using SourceHut. My expectation is "301 Moved Permanently" redirection for obsolete file names.

I do not think, a hundred of redirection rules gives significant overhead. I attributed Bastien's "too much" to maintaining documentation for several versions of Org. A part of original problem (if I get it correctly) was mix of old files survived from earlier versions of the manual and current ones. Certainly removing of outdated files was a proper step.

Tim Cross:
At this point, my vote is to just do a basic updated 404 page that
points to the index.html page for orgmode.org

For the manual and for the guide directories I still consider links to the table of contents (or even full table of contents) on 404 pages as a better variant.
