Bug Description

The man page for pam_cap (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/man8/pam_cap.8.html) claims that it is provided by the libcap2-bin package. This is incorrect, it is actually provided by the libpam-cap package (which is recommended by libcap2-bin.)

Note, the actual manpage makes no mention of the package. Which is
how it should be, as the manpage comes from upstream and not from
Ubuntu.

So if this is a bug, it is a bug against manpages.ubuntu.com.

Yes, I misspoke. To clarify I'm used to seeing the "provided by" link on manpages.ubuntu.com to link to the package I need to install to get the thing the man page references. That may just be a false association though.
