Update: man zsh back!
The man pages of
zsh are available again in the packages of Ubuntu.
This includes the help for builtin commands*.
Under Utopic, they should be just there by now; Try
man zshall to confirm.
Looking at the bug comments, the fix will unfourtunately not be available for Trusty.
At least not in the standard repository;
But there is a better workaround now:
Luckily, Rami Lehti has made a "backport" of the fix to Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty, and provides a PPA with it:
ppa:ramilehti/ppa - note that it contains only this one package, so it will not update others.
There are some hints to read before using PPAs - see the PPA page.
(*) Help for builtin commands is shown by
$ run-help printf

You did not miss anything - it's a bug; The zsh man pages are missing indeed, see
Bug #1242108: all zsh manpages are missing.

/usr/share/doc/zsh/zsh.pdf from the package
zsh-doc, which may need to be installed by
apt-get install zsh-doc.
Online, the current documentation can be found at The ZSH Manual in HTML.
GNU info pages can be read by the command
info zsh or
pinfo zsh or
