Happened to notice that the @since 1.8 tag is missing in generated api docs for certain methods of java.lang.reflect.Method. These are methods inherited from Executable, which has a @since 1.8 tag at the class level but not the methods themselves. Probably the same issue in other classes that extend Executable.
The root cause of this issue is the lack of @since tags in the overridden methods included as part of JDK-8004729. For an example of this technique, see the change for JDK-7007535.
