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