There is no way to reference a particular directive among multiple
ones with the same name by using the nginx.org/r/ redirector.
Mostly because additional module name would make the link
almost as long as the full one, and this hardly makes sense.

If you want to send a link, consider using a full link instead.
If you are looking for a list of directives (or variables) with a
particular name, consider using the index pages:
