Description of SDT markers resides in .notes section. If .notes section
is there, binary has SDT markers, if .notes section is not there, binary
does not have any SDT markers. So SDT markers does not have anything to
do with symbol table.

Yes, perf-buildid-cache and perf-probe man pages describes about SDT
markers.
