People have answered about the Duke of Cumberland hand you found as an example (and if you looked up Fleming's text, you would find a complete play. I just confirmed with my copy).
In general, it's a lot like recipe books for chefs, as opposed to recipe books for duffers like me. Instead of a detailed list of ingredients and thorough preparation steps, each recipe is a couple lines of "with this, this and this, add this during the simmer and serve with that". The key is that is all that is required for the chef to fill in everything else, with their knowledge and experience; all they need is the critical things that make this dish not some other.
And so with explanation of bridge deals. Their audience can be assumed to be very knowledgable; so only the unusual parts of the auction (if any) and the critical parts of the play need be mentioned. The readers will be able to work out the rest. And that's why Fleming wrote out the full play - he couldn't expect all Moonraker readers to be able to see it, the way even the writers of the newspaper bridge columns can expect.
This happens in the bar, after the session as well; everyone has their copy of the hand record, and the teller explains the auction, and says something like "I got the fourth best club lead, which I won. Because there was no other reason to double the slam than he thought he had two trump tricks, I hooked the 7 on the first round, and when partner showed out it was all over. If he hadn't doubled, I probably go down." People see it, smile at the result, and the next person brags about their brilliance (or gripes about their bad luck).
It happens during play as well; only about half of hands play to trick 13 (and many of those only because online it's easier to play the last two tricks than claim). Once all the problems are solved, declarer shows their hand, makes a claim statement (something like "club loser on the long diamond", or "pull the last trump"), everyone quickly sees how the rest of the play will go, and on to the next hand.
I actually find that details of play records (such as what ruds gave you) are harder to understand than a flow explanation.
