I converted an old NWC score to nwctxt to ease a general change and I discovered this:
Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
|Rest|Dur:16th,Staccato
Sic!  :))

As a matter of interest I looked into how to create this and if you press<,> before pressing <Space> you can actually create this construct in the UI, BUT if you place the rest, then highlight and attempt to make it staccato, you can't.

Is the dot supposed to appear? Or does the stacatto only live in the nwctxt?

The staccato is only present in the nwctxt, and it stays there even saving the score with a different name.
I was unaware of it until I peeked the code.

I wonder if it affects playback?  How could you tell?

The answer is: no.
How I know? Looking at the midi export.
