Some Hebrew characters (kaf, mem, nun, peh, tsadi) have different forms
when appearing at the end of a word (label). The Greek sigma is another
example. In Unicode, this is handled by having separate codepoints for
the final forms. This is in contrast to e.g. Arabic, where there are much
more contextual forms, and shaping is handled on display, and there is
only one codepoint per character.
Thank you, this makes sense. I will add text about this situation in
the next draft.
