[Dctrl-tools-devel] Bug#557964: Question about groff \`

I noticed the following comment from you in the bug log for #184603:
"Yes, this matches the instructions for the use of \` in groff(7)."
where "this" appears to mean that \` should be used when a backtick is meant.
But that manpage says:
\` The grave accent `; same as \(ga. Unescaped: left quote, backquote
which, to me, seems to indicate that an *unescaped* ` is the correct way to
produce a backtick.
Can you please clarify?
(This is related to Debian bug #557964.)
