That needs to be handled separately:
  https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8246037

I notice that ZGC block was added rather obscurely by confidential "8227602: Update nroff version of
man pages":
  https://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk/jdk/rev/340d73f42b3c

Not even sure there is a CSR for that change, and it feels like the change like that for Shenandoah
would require additional CSR.
