The headword is indeed a (neuter) diminutive of the (feminine) noun do/ca (for which see web address 1, and cf. delta 1362, delta 1364, delta 1365).
The same entry occurs in other lexica (Synagoge delta346, Photius delta712, ps.-Zonaras 564.1), and the common source may be Herodian, Partitiones 23.4.
The word doca/rion always has a negative nuance, either implicit in the context (e.g. Epictetus, Dissertationes ab Arriano digestae 1.18.22; Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 4.3.3) or underlined by accompanying adjectives (e.g. Lucian, Dialogues of the Dead 26.2: du/sthnon; Gregory of Nyssa, In Inscriptiones Psalmorum V p.43 l.6: du/sthnon; Gregory of Nazianzus, Letters 178.10: eu)tele/s; idem, Speech 19 [ad Julianum tributorum exaequatorem] 35.1048.26 Migne: mikro/n; Basil of Caesarea, Letters 45.1: mikro/n).
