probably, but there would need to be some library work done and
changes made to both utilities so they could use the same $helpers.

And there are several nominally incomplete regexes already in
kernel-doc and I'm not at all familiar with kernel-doc.

e.g.: kernel-doc has:

my $attribute = qr{__attribute__\s*\(\([a-z0-9,_\*\s\(\)]*\)\)}i;

but __attribute__ can have quotes like:

__attribute__((section("foo")))

and spaces around and and I believe between (( and )) like:

__attribute__ ((packed))

so those wouldn't match.

The use of parentheses internal to attributes like __align__(8) may
not work particularly well either given greedy matching.
