what man*x directories should contain ?

man pages are located beneath /usr/share/man.
e.g., manual pages for "section 1" are located in /usr/share/man/man1/.
And /usr/share/man/man*p should contain manual pages for POSIX programmers.

I need to know what /usr/share/man/man*x directories should contain ?

What appears in each section of the manual pages varies from system to system. On some systems the command man man will give you a list of the sections in your manual.

On others you may find an INTRO(section) man page for each section that describes the types of interfaces that will be described in that section of the manual. On systems like this the command man section intro should get you the intro man page for the specified section. If you don't know what sections are available, the command apropos intro may help.
