It is actually a bug, that LibreOffice does not use the help provided by
the extension, when it exists.

Do you think you would be interested in helping to fix that?  The code
that decides whether the help is installed is here:


[and around that]

It decides only on the availability of the main help, but does not do
anything about extensions; might be worth extending so that when the
help for an extension is installed (and asked for), the extension's help
would be shown.
