I would guess that no files under doc/ got tagged with v3_0_6.

Sorry, I misunderstood.  If you're talking about version3, then Manual.tex
_is_ on that branch; if you're talking about v3_0_6, it's a non-branch tag.
Does a "cvs up -dr version3" give you a doc/ directory?  If so, just tag it
with v3_0_6 and you should see your files when you check the project out.
