Correct. The manual and the online help system is not meant to be a workflow guide.
This is primarily because everyone's workflow will be different. Capture One is used by fashion photographers on multi-person sets, landscape photographers shooting to card, scientific researchers, cultural heritage institutions and more. Some elements of workflow are shared between all of those applications, but only very few.
I'd (selfishly) recommend considering Capture One Training
which range from general workflow introductions (fairly broad, but also short and easy and inexpensive) to more intensive full-day trainings or 1v1 consultations.
