It would appear that these are active when you are in a free-text field. 
When editing a transaction, there are other right-click options that 
replace what seems to be the default for free-text fields.

I don't know what you mean by "inscrutable". The options look pretty self-
evident to me (though I can't explain the somewhat eclectic selection of 
IMEs). If you don't want to use an IME, don't select one. If you don't 
want to insert RLEs or ZWNJs, don't.
