    I read on p. 15 (= p. 204)

    | In some cases, characters occur only at the end of words
    | in correct spelling; they are called trailing characters.
    | Examples include teh marbuta, alef maksura, and dammatan.
    | When trailing characters are joining (such as teh marbuta),
    | they are classified as right-joining, even when similarly
    | shaped characters are dual-joining.

    however, the trailing characters U+0649
    and U+06BA
    are classified as dual-joining.
