Starting from emacs -Q,

    M-x customize-variable emacs-lisp-mode-hook


    [ ] turn-on-eldoc-mode
        Unequivocally turn on eldoc-mode (see variable documentation). [More]

and asking for "More" only adds "(fn)".

It'd be nice if that description had quotes so `eldoc-mode' was a
link, and I think it's the eldoc-mode function which describes the
mode, rather than the variable, if that's what "see variable
documentation" is meant to be referring to (I couldn't tell).  A
sentence saying broadly what the mode does could be helpful under
"More", even if you normally follow to eldoc-mode for the details.
