Is the sword mastery skill a flat +50 damage on top of whatever damage you'd normally do? Or is it a buff to your weapon that's later used in damage calculations? Or something else entirely?

Reason I'm asking is I just noticed that axe mastery specifically says +30 damage, where sword mastery says ATK +50. I'm wondering why it's worded differently and what both actually mean.

They both add what's called Mastery ATK. It isn't a final damage thing, but Mastery ATK is not affected by many percentage damage modifiers (ranged, critical damage and skill damage still do), which makes it not as impactfull on a character's performance as you'd hope. There are also some odd cases where some skills do not include Mastery ATK at all in their calculations The better geared you are, the less of an impact having it makes, granted, i think gene should have enough throwaway points to just grab it.
I wouldn't get too hung on the ingame wording, as unfortunately it isn't always the best, and at times just not really correct. You can always double check with the wiki pages on the skills, or ask around on the wiki discord group.

Thank you for the help. From what you're telling me it sounds like sword mastery isn't really useful and I can put those 5 points towards a different skill that can up my CT damage.
