The php-fpm binary is installed in /usr/sbin when the man page is section 1.
I don't see any reason (other than multi-user support and the like) that makes it 
fit better in sbin instead of just bin.

php-fpm binary is a daemon not a standard command. As man hier described 
/usr/bin and /usr/sbin directory, php-fpm place is under /usr/sbin.

This is the primary directory for executable programs. Most programs executed by 
normal users which are not needed for booting or for repairing the system and 
which are not installed locally should be placed in this directory.

This directory contains program binaries for system administration which are not 
essential for the boot process, for mounting /usr, or for system repair.

Saying that, you're right that the man file is not at the right place. It should 
be placed in section 8 and not in section 1. As man(7) says:

1 Commands
Those commands that can be executed by the user from within a shell.

8 System management commands
Commands like mount(8), many of which only root can execute.

I'll move the man page from section 1 to section 8.
