To clarify, this means that the short horizontal line above a letter is
identified as COMBINING MACRON. This is common for the diacritic that
indicates vowel length in many transliteration, transcription, and
phonetic writing systems.

I think "[m + DOT ABOVE]" means an "m" with a diacritic dot above it,
not macron. (I'm not sure of the intended meaning of writing "M", though.)
That would be U+006D U+0307 in decomposed form, and it has a precomposed
version: LATIN SMALL LETTER M WITH DOT ABOVE, U+1E41.
