Citing Anthony J. Bentley:

The below patch causes -mdoc to generate typographic quotes around
a %T (reference title) instead of straight quotes.

I also submitted similar diffs to mandoc and heirloom troff (which
haven't been committed yet). It would be nice for the major
implementations not to differ here, and the change is trivial.

It's worth noting that groff's refer(1) already uses typographic quotes around %T with my -ms documents.
