does PHP do documentation, like javadoc creates documentation?

Yes, you can create documentation in PHP using phpDocumentor as we have
JAVADOC in Java.
Similar to Java's javadoc tool, phpDocumentor automatically creates API
documentation by reading special identifiers and comments embedded in
your PHP code. phpDocumentor can output its documentation in a variety
of formats (including HTML, XML, and PDF), further reducing the time
spent on manual documentation. Of course for more sophisticated
documentation like user manuals or process flow diagrams you still need
a technical writer. But for simple class documentation and method
prototypes, phpDocumentor is a very adequate tool.
