I am looking for an example how Sharepoint farm should be documented. I know about scripts that can help with it but I am looking for the actual document template (pdf or doc/docx) that shows how it should be done and what it should contain.

I don't know of any template/checklist that you can just fill out but this page has a good list of the lings you will need to document.

Thanks but I already saw it. More interested in the actual document - how it is formatted, etc.

It's formatted in a style that suits the admin who has to read and write it I imagine.
If you want some suggestion of format/order then personally I would do it an order that read like an install or DR guide.
Servers in farm: OS and patch levels
Service accounts used
Farm admins
Service applications setup with details
Solutions and features
Etc

There are thousands of features, tick boxes, decisions, wizards for an admin to consider.
Best to write your own story.
