The de facto standard for kernel-doc comments is at the implementation site,
which means normally in .c files, except for macros or inline functions.

Sure you can find some exceptions to that. And there is no hard requirement
in Documentation/kernel-doc-nano-HOWTO.txt.

IMO the biggest concern is making sure that the (kernel-doc) comments are
updated when the function implementation changes (if updates are needed).
Where would be the best place for this to be more likely to happen?
Usually at the function implementation, I would say.
