doc: declare what type of comments we support in pacman.conf

Ini-style configuration formats are all over the place. So are we, for
that matter, as we switched how we treated middle-of-line comments in
commit 8a19c4a7

 -- namely, they're not
comments anymore. This is surprising to users, who report bugs because
it used to work, but what's more surprising is that the only
"documentation" for the type of comments users can be expected to use,
is by guessing from our example pacman.conf and maybe discovering
unreliable easter eggs.

Fixes FS#58809
