What was in it previously?

I think ~/.local/share/mime/packages is the "source code", and
everything else is generated from those. The only files I have in
~/.local/share/mime have come from either Wine associating various
Windows-related formats with itself, or the GLib test suite using
"application/x-extension-gio-tests" to make sure this is still something
that is possible to do.

I would guess that the most likely root cause would be some sort of
misconfiguration for text/html or a related file type, which might make
devhelp misinterpret HTML files as something that it doesn't know how
to load?
