No, PolarPlot and a few other functions are missing from the table on  
the ColorFunction page.  For XXXXPlot documentation, I generally  
suggest looking at the documentation for the function first, instead  
of the options.  The function documentation should have fairly  
complete coverage of how the options can be used in ways specific to  
that function, but the documentation for the options frequently just  
samples the functions that have that option.

(An exception to this is that general graphics options like  
AspectRatio or Background that don't have any special behavior for a  
function generally aren't covered in any detail, if at all.)
