Then I'm confused. At the end of 1942, that rule should expire, because
of the "only" leaving what rule in effect? Apparently none, leaving the
time in 1943 undefined.
Where can I find a explanation of the tz text database format?

Yes, that's what's happening here. The rule to switch to DST applies
only in 1942. There is no rule to switch _out_ of DST in 1942, so DST
continues until 1945, the next rule that applies.
