I suspect DO actively strip out man pages to keep image sizes down. I’m also using CentOS 7.2 and have noticed that man pages for the likes of pam, iptables, yum, and others are missing even though the rpms that contain them are installed. Your only option is to reinstall the rpm containing the missing man pages. e.g.

$ sudo yum reinstall iptables

Hey! You might need to first install man pages. [source]

Try:

yum check-update
yum update
yum install man
yum install man-pages
