I think you're looking for man -s, which works fine. I didn't even
know -S existed.

It seems that the problem is that -S is defined somewhat differently
for man and apropos; I have no idea which one of them (if either) is
wrong, but it certainly violates the principle of least surprise the
way it is. Please file a PR.
