The hint is set in unit ide/ComponentPalette, line 744 in Lazarus trunk.
I don't have details for getting the FPDoc info but you can study the
code yourself. It is used for example in the Object Inspector's
Information Box below the properties.
I don't think the feature requires much code once you have figured out
where to get the needed data. This is typical in a big project. A
commit with only few lines of code has required many hours of studying
the existing code.

May the source be with you! :)
