Question [Un] coated weapons

I'm new to Unangband and have some questions about weapon coatings. Specifically I'm wondering what some of them actually do. Like the stat draining mushrooms. If I have a dart coated with a mushroom of naivety what does it do to monsters? What other mushrooms or potions have unobvious effects when spread on weapons?

It drains their WIS; duh.

It also does some damage, regardless if the draining succeeded or not (you get a message about it when hitting a monster).

I guess all effects will become obvious if you identify a mushroom and read the description after "when applied to coat a weapon or arrow". Due to a feature/bug, ID or even frequent use (eating?) of the mushroom is needed to get numerical information about the damage, etc.

Which affects their ability to resist certain magical effects...

I guess it's a feature/bug we need to document. "You will learn more about this item as you use it." is probably not a bad idea.

I concur (though I generally hate learn-by-using, just as train-skill-by-doing and any other kind of get-high-by-repeatedly-hitting-keys).
