|NB: the screenshot showing the rod with (4/10) charge was taken after firing it once, even though with (10/10) it was still grayed out with the 'useless' notation.|
Interesting! The description on chop2.png definitely needs some updating since
according to the crawl_manual, Rods "...have a pool of magical energy which regenerates according to the rod's enchantment (which can be increased using scrolls of recharging) and your Evocations skill."
Therefore it doesn't use the player's MP (seen in chop3.PNG)...but the last line of the description on chop2.PNG makes it sound like it does.
As far as I know, Explosive Bolt is only available on Rods so it should be very simple to update it to a rod-specific description like:
"This spell cannot be used right now since the rod's magical reservoir has been depleted below what is required by this spell."
|Wasn't able to reproduce the grey text for spell names (that always showed up blue for me), but the uselessness description should be fixed in 98bc2407866d. Let me know if that fixes things for you.|

as for the greyed out part on chop2.png, I'm on v.15.2 (Linux Tiles) and it is not greyed out if the Rod has enough MR but it is when there isn't enough MP.

Note: I got this info while in Wizard Mode and because of this the info for the spell was completely different than on chop2.png
My guess this might be a reason why silentsnack is getting different results.
Looking at the many occurrences of "Explosive Bolt" on http://crawl.develz.org/trunk/changes.txt, [^] it seems like it might be a recent meta-bug (a bug from a recent bug fix).
