The additional output is generated for printed versions of the manual,
where clicking is not (always) possible.  In on-line versions (Info,
HTML, etc.) there's no additional output from @ref.

  Click @ref{mynode1234, this link} to jump to mynode1234

should do that.

You should have that in HTML.  As for PDF, Texinfo produces it as a
printed version; if you want a PDF that's only read on-line, I suggest
to take the HTML version and convert it to PDF.
