[texdoc] Possible Bug

I'm not sure if this is a bug, or my lack of understanding, but the following behaviour of texdoc is not what I would expect.

I am using texlive 2022, under macos 12. The system language is set to English, and my environment contains LANG=en_GB.UTF-8.

However, when I type 
texdoc einfart
I get shown the Chinese information at 
rather than the English information at 
appropriate to my LANG and system language settings.

The texdoc documentation seems to say that by default the language of the documentation shown should reflect the system's locale.

I do not have a personal config file:
cat: /Users/ralph/Library/texmf/texdoc/texdoc.cnf: No such file or directory
and I have not changed the system-wide one
