For future reference, as a general principle, using

  dpkg -L packagename

shows you what files a given package installed.  In this case

  dpkg -L rsyslog-doc

would have shown you where the files were installed to.

Also, /usr/share/doc/packagename  is a well known location for
package-installed documentation and so is a good place to check when
seeking information about any installed package.

Lastly, if you forget both of those, the old-fashioned way to look for
files on your machine is to use locate, and

  locate rsyslog

would have output the location of the documentation concerned, assuming
its database was up to date (it usually gets updated nightly).
