It's a simple plain text file /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/ 
texdoctk/texdoctk.dat, used by texdoctk (not texdoc).

This file is normally used by texdoc, according to its included  
comments, unless the user has defined a ~/.texdocrc file (how I hate  
these ~/. invisible files, instead of proper visible OS X pref files  
inside ~/Library/Preferences/ or ~/Library/Application Support/).  
However, according to Peter Dyballa, texdocrc.defaults isn't actually  
used by texdoc, and instead it's the corresponding code inside the  
script itself (/Library/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/texdoc  
or /Library/teTeX/bin/i386-apple-darwin-current/texdoc) that defines  
texdoc's behaviour:
