I fixed this earlier this month.

commit 866df037ba067382c31f88b0b63c5f269d92cefa
Author: G. Branden Robinson <g.branden.robinson@gmail.com>
Date:   Mon Nov 8 18:23:10 2021 +1100

    doc/groff.texi: Tweak reference intro sections.

    * Explicitly state that, in filled text, any normal space is
      interchangeable with an input line break.
    * Improve accuracy: not _all_ of groff's own documents follow the style
      guidance offered here.
    * Tighten relativity text example in both dimensions, in part to shut up
      TeX overfull vbox warning.
    * In same example, explicitly give groff -T option in case some reader's
      build uses a @DEVICE@ other than `ps`.
    * Replace shorthand term "escape" with "escape sequence".
    * Clarify and tighten.

I can confirm this but since the esthetics of the generated documents seem fine, I'm not regarding this as a priority to resolve.

As I understand it, and in my own experience with the system, TeX tends to be really chatty with overfull vbox and hbox warnings.  Possibly this is completely correct but a hazard of using insufficiently paranoid macro packages.
