It should be in the libsnmp-perl package.
$ grep man3 debian/*manpages

However the build system:
Installing /build/net-snmp-5.9+dfsg/debian/tmp/usr/share/man/man3/SNMP.3
Installing /build/net-snmp-5.9+dfsg/debian/tmp/usr/share/man/man3/NetSNMP::agent.3pm
its not installed as SNMP.3pm

I think the issue is in perl/SNMP/Makefile.PL
                  MAN3PODS => { 'SNMP.pm' => '$(INST_MAN3DIR)/SNMP.3' },
