I wonder if we should be using -nW
-n nit-picky mode, warn about all missing references [...] -W turn warnings into errors
This would make it so that any missing ref would cause an error. We'd need to do some work to make docs build correctly in order to get this to pass, but it seems like it would be an asset for later.

Also I have added a new task for the intersphinx sklearn issue: T233270
