RFR: 8281057: Fix doc references to overriding in JLS

While looking into guts of javadoc comment inheritance, I noticed that a number of places in JDK seem to confuse JLS 8.4.6.** with JLS 8.4.8.**.

Granted, "8.4.6 Method Throws" tangentially addresses overriding. However, I believe that the real target should be "8.4.8. Inheritance, Overriding, and Hiding" and its subsections.
