vt100 terminfo description does have smul/rmul (underlining) sequences
defined, but they include delays "$<2>", which is what you see.
A delay in milliseconds may appear anywhere in a string
capability, prefixed with a dollar sign and enclosed by angled
brackets, such as $<5>.
So the problem is that apropos doesn't use terminfo correctly.
