[docs] [issue10289] Document magic methods called by built-in functions

New submission from Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org>:

At the top of Doc/library/functions.rst, which documents built-in functions like abs, getattr or hash, a comment reads “document all delegations to __special__ methods”.

Some functions are already good: enumerate for instance does link to the definition of iterator and hints about the __next__ method, format points to __format__, etc.  They can serve as example for how to add links (in plain text and in the global index).
