Exactly. Only the first Macro is documented, for example :


This is not so dramatic, because at least one is documented, and the other 
is not so far away :)

I've written most of the (infamous) Perl scripts that are used to build the 
current documentation using doxygen (Vetle Roeim started the project) , but 
they were no satisfying grouping mechanism at that time. Doxygen 1.6 has 
been released, I guess I shall find some time to finish the scripts, 
provided that Kitware will be OK with the tags that have to be put at the 
beginning and the end of the group, and that it will upgrade to doxygen 
1.6. I just had not time to take care of that until now.
