So without looking more closely at the man3 directory, I deleted the db.3 file from the command line. But after doing so, I couldn't find my DB.3 file anymore!
Permissions differ on ./usr/share/man/man3/DB.3, should be -rw-r--r-- , they are -r--r--r-- Owner and group corrected on ./usr/share/man/man3/DB.3 Permissions corrected on ./usr/share/man/man3/DB.3 Permissions differ on ./usr/share/man/man3/db.3, should be -r--r--r-- , they are -rw-r--r-- Owner and group corrected on ./usr/share/man/man3/db.3 Permissions corrected on ./usr/share/man/man3/db.3
Some of you may remember that the Unix side of Mac OX is not as strict with case-sensitivity as other flavors of Unix. I had deleted the DB.3 when I issued the rm db.3 command. Luckily, I was able to copy the DB.3 file from my back-up archive. Being that it's a manpage file, it isn't all that important. I still don't know, though, why Disk Utility would try to correct the permissions for db.3, and "correct" it to be different from DB.3. I do not know if Disk Utility in Pather exhibits this behavior.
