What am I supposed to see there?

I read the documentation of this function, even looked at its source
code, and now I feel confirmed in my analysis of things.  But I can't
see anything that would help me to solve the actual problem, that is
forcibly disabling `auto-fill-mode`.  I can't even control when and
how this function is invoked, as `define-derived-mode` does that

Call me stupid, but I fail to see how it could.  It's executed even
earlier than `body-of-foo-mode`, and thus suffers from the same
problem:  The later execution of `text-mode-hook` will bring back
`auto-fill-mode`, given `(add-hook 'text-mode-hook
'auto-fill-mode)` in the user's init file.

I need something that runs *after* `text-mode-hook`, but *before*
