Right, that one is on me:

commit f427a26e3d238af25cd4a8fe385be5faebd0c59f

    doc: Use real target for result of build-doc-tree
    Avoid rebuilding the tree when recursing into Documentation/ multiple
    times during 'make doc' which can take a considerable amount of time.
    While at it, give 'make website' the same treatment and clean up some
    variables and their uses or remove if not referenced anymore.

See for a
possible fix, correctly handling webdoc requires another recursion.
