The main reason for donking is beeing scared of not getting a bet in, like hero has low Turncbet also as a semibluff
If he wants to get stacks in why doesn't he wait for hero to bet? It's super unlikely that he won't get bet into
I think you're giving too much credit to this villain's intelligence. Someone playing 36/6/1.4 doesn't know how to maximise value. They just think "Wow! I made two pair, I need to bet!"
Check-raising with 2pr or a set would be standard for a thinking player. For a fish, donkbetting is the first choice.
I've called or raised way too many fishy turn or river donks this week. I think I probably won about 5% of the time.
