Looking over the user guide, there are sections

Configuring Your Desktop > Look and Feel > Appearance Preferences >
Interface Preferences


Configuring Your Desktop > Look and Feel > Windows Preferences

which will have to be axed along with the UI they describe.

And then there is this sentence:

You can also press-and-hold Alt and drag any part of the window.

in the section Desktop Overview > Windows > Manipulating Windows.
Worth pointing out that it is already a half-truth, since the current
UI makes the modifier configurable, which should be mentioned here.

My suggestion for Alt-click is to turn it off by default, since it
seems to cause problems for some apps, and the functionality is
available via the window menu anyway.
