I see that in various Linux distributions different options/variables are used in /etc/default/grub. This might be because of different versions of grub2 used (I might be wrong?) On the net I can find distro specific documentation, like for gentoo. I was wondering if there is something like a manpage, included with the system, documenting which options are recognized in /etc/default/grub and what they do.

Edit: I found the online docu myself. Still I am wondering if I can find that info on the system without visiting the net.

The Arch Wiki is an excellent resource for all things Linux. It is of course tailored for the Arch distribution but nonetheless a good portion of the information carries over to all distributions.
