When searching for re (re0) network adapter driver man page I found re - Perl program to alter regular expressions behavior.
It is a bit confusing as other drivers can be found in this way (ath, em as an example)
What do you mean by a conflict?
Do you know about manual page sections?
Do you know about man -a?
The same name can be re-used in different sections for different purposes.
This is expected behavior. Please see the description of the -s flag in the man(1) manual page. It explains why "re" first matches the re(1) utility instead of the re(4) driver.
Also, remember that you can always force man(1) to open a manual page from a specific section. In your case it would look like this:
$ man 4 re
Hope it helps :)
Thanks for pointing this!

I did not know that names can be reused.
Apologies for wasted bits and time.

Perhaps there could be a handbook section about the basics of navigating around manual pages...
