I think these ANSI glitches have been fixed in Emacs 28.  Would it be
possible for you to build that and check?

  Render a LONG manual page, for instance :

      M-x manual-entry bash
  ALWAYS triggers this bug for me, on a Fedora 34 x86_64 Linux distro,
  fully up-to-date as of 2021-11-11 -

      $ rpm -q emacs

  What happens is that sometimes, owing to buffering,
  only PART of a multi-character terminal escape code
  written by the man(1) process is read, so since
  the default man.el is doing fontification on-the-fly,
  sometimes at some point the whole rest of the manual
  page appears in bold, or italic, or underlined font.

  With these changes to man.el, in the attached patch,
  fontification occurs only once ALL man(1) process
  output has been read.

  So the buffer will briefly flash the un-fontified
  contents, then switch to fully-fontified, with
  no missing font transitions .

  This is preferable to the misinterpretation of
  escape codes due to buffering causing missed
  font transitions.

;;; Commentary:

;; This code provides a function, `man', with which you can browse
;; UNIX manual pages.  Formatting is done in background so that you
;; can continue to use your Emacs while processing is going on.
;; The mode also supports hypertext-like following of manual page SEE
;; ALSO references, and other features.  See below or do `?' in a
;; manual page buffer for details.

;; In mid 1991, several people posted some interesting improvements to
;; man.el from the standard Emacs 18.57 distribution.  I liked many of
;; these, but wanted everything in one single package, so I decided
;; to incorporate them into a single manual browsing mode.  While
;; much of the code here has been rewritten, and some features added,
;; these folks deserve lots of credit for providing the initial
;; excellent packages on which this one is based.

;; Nick Duffek <duffek@HIDDEN>, posted a very nice
;; improvement which retrieved and cleaned the manpages in a
;; background process, and which correctly deciphered such options as
;; man -k.

;; Eric Rose <erose@HIDDEN>, submitted manual.el which
;; provided a very nice manual browsing mode.

;; This package was available as `superman.el' from the LCD package
;; for some time before it was accepted into Emacs 19.  The entry
;; point and some other names have been changed to make it a drop-in
;; replacement for the old man.el package.

;; Francesco Potort=C3=AC <pot@HIDDEN> cleaned it up thoroughly,
;; making it faster, more robust and more tolerant of different
;; systems' man idiosyncrasies.

;; - Add a command for printing.
;; - The awk script deletes multiple blank lines.  This behavior does
;;   not allow one to understand if there was indeed a blank line at the
;;   end or beginning of a page (after the header, or before the
;;   footer).  A different algorithm should be used.  It is easy to
;;   compute how many blank lines there are before and after the page
;;   headers, and after the page footer.  But it is possible to compute
;;   the number of blank lines before the page footer by heuristics
;;   only.  Is it worth doing?
;; - Allow a user option to mean that all the manpages should go in
;;   the same buffer, where they can be browsed with M-n and M-p.

  "Get a Un*x manual page and put it in a buffer.
This command is the top-level command in the man package.
It runs a Un*x command to retrieve and clean a manpage in the
background and places the results in a `Man-mode' browsing
buffer.  The variable `Man-width' defines the number of columns in
formatted manual pages.  The buffer is displayed immediately.
The variable `Man-notify-method' defines how the buffer is displayed.
If a buffer already exists for this man page, it will be displayed
without running the man command.

For a manpage from a particular section, use either of the
following.  \"cat(1)\" is how cross-references appear and is
passed to man as \"1 cat\".

    1 cat

To see manpages from all sections related to a subject, use an
\"all pages\" option (which might be \"-a\" if it's not the
default), then step through with `Man-next-manpage' (\\<Man-mode-map>\\[Man=
-next-manpage]) etc.
Add to `Man-switches' to make this option permanent.

    -a chmod

An explicit filename can be given too.  Use -l if it might
otherwise look like a page name.

    -l somefile.1

An \"apropos\" query with -k gives a buffer of matching page
names or descriptions.  The pattern argument is usually an
\"grep -E\" style regexp.
