Re: executable.el / sh-script.el problem?

    Visiting a fresh buffer and performing M-x sh-mode does not
    automatically insert the magic #! line at the top of the script-to-be,
    nor does it automatically make the file executable on saving, as I was
    led to expect by the documentation in executable.el.

This is not a bug.  Merely selecting a major mode in Emacs is not
supposed to do such things to your file's contents and modes.

You can call sh-set-shell if you want to do such things.

Where in executable.el is there documentation that appears
to say that sh-mode would do these things?  I don't see it,
but if you point it out to me, I will fix it.
