Do we really need a function in "the tradition of other *-message functions" if we don't ever use it like that?

Agreed. Can you suggest how to word it?  Here's what I come up with:

   "Display FORMAT-STRING formatted with ARGS as an ElDoc message.

Store the message (if any) in `eldoc-last-message', and return it."

Looks okay to me, aside from what I mentioned above.

Return `eldoc-last-message'."

This is probably non-essential, and we can avoid mentioning it.

I think it once again follows the convention of other *-message
functions, probably for consistency.

Yeah, ok.
