If in packages folder there is a package with non default lib folder.
That can be configured:

 1. by setting directories.lib to "." in package.json
 2. by specifying main outside of 'lib' folder in package.json

cfx docs fail with an error:

ne moment.

It should pick up the right folder or in worst case ignore such package and print a warning specifying package path that can't be documented properly.
Notice that cfx docs fails in both cases listed above: when I discovered the bug and I talked with Irakli about it, he asked to me to add the directories.lib to package.json of the addon that broke the docs (jep4repl), but it doesn't solved the problem at all.
Oof, this sucks.  And it's definitely borderline.  But it doesn't feel quite bad enough to block.
