Thanks Carlos for the input,

Reposting this patch for BZ #19038, as now I have the copyright assignment
with FSF.

Here the bug is that; if doc string starts with `\v` then the whole doc string
is printed both before and after the options.

The bug can be reproduced using following code.

#include<stdlib.h>
#include<argp.h>

static char doc[] = "\vthis is post_doc";
static struct argp argp = {NULL, NULL, NULL, doc};

int main(int argc, char *args[]){
     argp_parse(&argp, argc, args, 0, 0, NULL);
}

Currently we get the output of this code as

$ argp-help --help
Usage: argp-help [OPTION...]

this is post_doc

  -?, --help                 Give this help list
      --usage                Give a short usage message

this is post_doc

As mentioned in the comment on bugzilla, the first occurrence of
"this is post_doc" is erroneous.

This is happening because in argp-help.c in the function argp_doc 'char *vt'
(which is responsible for determining the position for vertical tab in the
doc string) is being initialized only once,

It should be initialized for each child in the documentation.

The next thing is the complete doc string needs to be printed only if
1. If there is only one child in the doc string
   and the doc string does not start with '\v'.
2. The argument 'first_only' to the function 'argp_doc' is 0.

After applying the patch we get the output as following.

$ argp-help --help
Usage: argp-help [OPTION...]

  -?, --help                 Give this help list
      --usage                Give a short usage message

this is post_doc

A test case for this is also added in the patch.
Following is the patch for this bug.

Subject: [PATCH] Fix argp.doc prints incorrectly when it starts with '\v' (Bug
 19038)

"char *vt" in the function "argp_doc" is initialized for every child in the doc.

The complete doc string is printed only in two cases.
1. There is only one child in the doc and the doc does not starts with '\v'.
2. Argument "first_only" to the function "argp_doc" is 0.

Added test argp/tst-argp3.c for this case.
