That is the Language Reference Section.

The top level page is https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/OpenSCAD_User_Manual

Yes, the specifically named (by non-standard parameter) group is
probably the best option. That's pretty much the conclusion from
the discussion in the linked github issue. The inclusion of
layers directly into SVG does not seem to have made much progress.
