Bug Description

If you compare the last 3 sections between these 2 manual pages:

- https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/man1/numfmt.1.html
- https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/disco/man1/numfmt.1.html

The first one has HTTP links for the license, the documentation, and for reporting bugs. While in the second ones, the links use HTTPS.

In the first, it seems that the system is detecting them as links and converting them into HTML <a> elements. While in the second, the links are not detected at all.
