Mhhh indeed you are correct, I tried to replicate and while haddock
doesn't complain, it doesn't output anything for the implemented

Maybe a workaround could be:

    -- | Prova
    instance Fun Foo where
      fun :: a
      fun = undefined

This will put text on the right of the /instance declaration/.
