I don't know how to find the technical description of a mouse, but here
is the XInput 2 documentation.  You should specifically look at the
section titled "Pointer emulation from multitouch events":


While the documentation makes it seem specific to touchpads, at least 2
kinds of mice, Apple's "Magic Mouse 2", and some Logitech mice with
"hyperscrolling" also generate events in that specific way.
