The job-template for the unified doc build job is in

It uses the "docs" macro, which invokes the script

I think we would want to place any new logic for extending the build in
that script, although we should coordinate any changes with the Zuul v3
rollout because as part of that I have seen some suggestions to change
the expected interface for building documentation and we want to make
sure any changes we make will work with the updated interface.
