I've been looking up what abilities NPCs have in Classic a lot recently, and it seems like the entries on wowhead are very incomplete for some reason.
Gordok Brute has 1 ability listed, while classicdb has 7https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=11441/gordok-brute#abilitieshttps://classicdb.ch/?npc=11441#abilities
Onyxia here has 1, classicdb 4https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=10184/onyxia#abilitieshttps://classicdb.ch/?npc=10184#abilities
Ragnaros here has 2, classicdb 4https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=11502/ragnaros#abilitieshttps://classicdb.ch/?npc=11502#abilities
I don't know how accurate or complete the entries on classicdb are, but it would be nice if the ones on here could be updated a bit! At least major bosses and such.

Thanks for the report.
I can't speak for other sites, but we try to keep our data only from the actual Classic servers.
Right before WoW Classic was officially launched, Blizzard has made spell ids unavailable in the combat events for npcs, making it difficult to collect these information.
As a workaround, we now collect and show these spells by the spell names. For a spell name that matches only one spell, we will show that one spell with its id. But for those that match multiple spell names, we currently show them all (which can be a lot), which you can now see in your example Gordok Brute
And for major bosses or npcs, we have also started to manually specify these spells by their ids. Examples are:RagnarosOnyxia
I hope this answers at least some of your questions. Feel free to report any extra data or incorrect data and we will fix them.
Thanks for your support!(##RESPBREAK##)
