I have looked into the code storing and handling links yet, so I am 
unaware what is possible and what is not. My expectation is to get link 
to org-beginning-of-line if help is invoked from an org buffer and link 
to beginning-of-line if I came to the help page from some other file. I 
do not know whether associated function may be obtained for a help 
buffer opened for keystroke.
