Iron certainly DOES do extra damage to Uz and Aldryami when enchanted, although, as you say, it no longer affects magic.

Yes, all rune metals always affected Gloranthan weres (and the few other Gloranthan creatures unaffected by mundane attacks). Likewise magic affects them. Personally, I also allow suffocation, possibly poisons, and a few other 'unusual' but mundane attack forms to affect them, as well as simple exhaustion &/or morale loss - all of which can reduce a were to defeat in HW.
