Did you ever find out?
I had a similar question about Algic languages recently.

There's a couple nice sections on word formation in the Routledge Language Family series entry on Mongolic. Nothing on Kalmyk that I see from the index, but there's a section on Khalkha written by Jan-Olof Svantesson. Khalkha vocabulary in particular is described as being "a closely woven web of interrelated words connected by derivative suffixes."
