A general comment on those pages is that the tabular lists of functions
are intended to give one-liner descriptions of what the functions do.
For cases where a one-liner isn't sufficient, there's a sentence or a
paragraph following the table.

I don't find this layout remarkably intuitive myself, but I wonder
whether anyone has a concrete plan for making it better?
