Fix the documentation about the MODIFY_FIELD RTE Flow action.
1. Include the rte_flow_field_id enumeration reference to point
to the full list of all supported Field IDs available.
2. Correct the formatting of the MODIFY_FIELD action and the
destination/source field definition tables.

Fixes: 73b68f4c54 ("ethdev: introduce generic modify flow action")
