It some circumstances it would, but not this one.

 1. This 'kernel-doc' function is not referenced from any
    documentation location i.e. it is presently unused and there is no
    reason for it to be kernel-doc in the first place.
 2. This patch stops `scripts/find-unused-docs.sh` complaining about
    phy_common.c
 3. 'b43_phy_txpower_adjust_work' is the only function that has been
     documented as kernel-doc - why is that?  Seems like a mistake.
