It would be in the mouse driver man page - the options for each driver
module in Xorg are documented in that driver's man page.   That may
be installed as the mouse man page under /usr/X11/man or mouse_drv
man page under /usr/man depending on your distro.

Not at all - it just hasn't been greatly changed since the
XFree86 source was used as the basis of the Xorg server.
