I thought about that.
Looking at the history, the toplevel inclusion was added in
b1663d7e3a7961 (2019-06-04), and the lib/Kconfig.debug inclusion was
added in 75442fb0ccaacd (2020-10-30).
Given the actual entries in Documentation/Kconfig
(WARN_MISSING_DOCUMENTS and WARN_ABI_ERRORS), putting them under the
"Kernel hacking" menu makes sense to me.
We *could* add a new top-level menu to Documentation/Kconfig, but it
doesn't really seem like an improvement over having them live in
Kernel hacking.
