This all makes sense. I was confused on where my help path was, it is docs/5. ref

The folder that everything in is hidden so ive been doing everything through the terminal, its kinda hard to work with no visuals. Anyways, in my .pdrc file i just put -helppath /path/to/my/help/files/extra help files?

firstly, this is perfect behaviour:
if you specify several search-paths you can't complain that all the paths
searched, do you ?
anyhow, you  could specify the whole path when trying to load the library in
first place, eg: "pd -lib /path/to/my/superlib/superlib:/old/libs/oldlib"
instead of "pd -path /path/to/my/superlib:/old/libs/oldlib -lib

there is a "-helppath" option.
and i don't understand, why anyone would install the docs into "5.doc"
of "doc" (or "doc/5.reference")
