Having chapters that only contain the doc strings was never the
intent.  I have always wanted to have the doc strings complemented
with text that includes some overall description of the set of
functions described in a given chapter.  It's just that the current
text doesn't meet that goal very well.

Yes, I intend to write something more complete for .oct files.

Yes, I just haven't gotten there yet.
