  Yes, it would be helpful to mention fc-cache in addition to fc-list.
Do you have any concrete suggestion to improve that paragraph?

> To be told that "the font is looked up through the operating system, using the fontconfig library" does not really make it clear that if one is experiencing significant delays loading fonts that one needs to search outside the TeX Live documentation in order to learn how to address such issues.

  Indeed, this is not stated in the reference documentation.  Nor do I
think it is necessarily true.  And this issue is clearly about XeTeX,
not TeX Live.
