ASN1_INTEGER *X509_get_serialNumber(X509 *x);

implemented in crypto/x509/x509_cmp.c:

ASN1_INTEGER *X509_get_serialNumber(X509 *a)
     return &a->cert_info.serialNumber;

The docs should be fixed, but there's:

int EVP_PKEY_id(const EVP_PKEY *pkey);
int EVP_PKEY_base_id(const EVP_PKEY *pkey);

implemented in crypto/evp/p_lib.c:

int EVP_PKEY_id(const EVP_PKEY *pkey)
     return pkey->type;

int EVP_PKEY_base_id(const EVP_PKEY *pkey)
     return EVP_PKEY_type(pkey->type);
