Hovering (Macro expansion, documentation etc.) is not working. Support for Doxygen???

I'm using several Eclipse based IDEs and while the usefulness of the information displayed when "hovering" over a variable/typedef/macro differs, no other Eclipse based IDE shows as little information as LPCXpresso.
Even when enabling doxygen and playing around with the hovering options in the global/project settings, all I ever get is a text saying "Write occurrence of 'xyz'" which seems to be completely useless. Besides, hovering only works on variables etc. that I selected before using a double-click.
In other IDEs like CoIDE, I can hover over any variable or macro and get either source code display or macro expansion. In a plain Java Eclipse I also get Javadoc based documentation information.
So why is it that hovering seems to be completely broken in LPCXpresso?
Is there any way to get it to work as least as in CoIDE (quick source code display and macro expansion)?
Any hope to get a documentation view as in a plain vanilla Java Eclipse? If not: why does most of the provided source code use Doxygen/Javadoc style comments if they are not used at all???
