I can confirm the behavior.  It shows up for me on macOS 10.13.6.  My most recent update was on October 29, FWIW.

And also, I have, in the last 4-5 days, used texdoc successfully, so that, e.g., “texdoc latex” or “makeindex” displays something reasonable, even if I run it several times.

Must have something to do with the argument.
