Functions are descriptors, so this rule already covers ordinary methods.
The slight concern I have with making the duck typed exclusion only
descriptors (rather than descriptors and callables) is that it means things
like functools.partial objects will be treated as enum values rather than
as static methods. OTOH, explicitly wrapping such callables in staticmethod
should still work, so the simpler rule is probably better.
