My impression is that it is generating its indexes and rendering on
the fly (or at least in some opaque manner) directly from the sources.
There does not seem to be any setting which governs what is produced
or displayed; I think it is generally a feature (not a bug) that one
can browse into dependency and JDK sources and get quick JavaDoc on
any element, even non-public elements.
