Go doc behavior a bug?

Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but was curious about this result from go doc.

When I declare multiple variables like so:

package main

var (
	A = 1
	B = 2
	C = 3
	D = 4
var E = 5

then go doc -short does not pick up all of A,B,C,D:

var A = 1 ...
var E = 5

I am trying to get a list of all exported symbols from a package. In that case, there are six errors declared with the multiline var syntax. Three of them are listed with go doc -short, but the last three are skipped. Is go doc working as intended?
