The ZFS manual pages come directly from Solaris. As a result, these are full
of things that do not apply to NetBSD.


man zfs
man zpool



Either rewrite or refactor the manual pages. At least things that do not
apply to NetBSD should be removed. This includes also references to
nonexistent manual pages.
