Answer:
ISO 9001:2015 does not require a Quality Manual. So, organizations that decide to develop and maintain a Quality Manual have a lot of freedom to include whatever they want. For example, many organizations use the Quality Manual just for presenting the organization at a higher level. So, it is quite possible that a document not referenced in the Quality Manual is still a usable, valid and even important document.
