At the moment, yeah.  Since wpa_supplicant uses raw D-Bus instead of a
framework like gdbus or qtdbus (since the supplicant does not depend on
a specific mainloop, but implements its own), documentation can't be
autogenerated, which means somebody needs to manually write it.  Would
be great to have autogenerated docs like the NM ones, but that would
also mean a somewhat more complex build process which may not be welcome
(ie, would require something like docbook or gtkdoc or whatever).  That
said, we should try to figure out a way to get documentation that
doesn't take a ton of effort to produce...
