I am working on a similar issue, not sure if you have figured this out, but some of the actual error message data comes back as a stringified JSON object. In my experience those errors usually come with code: and message: keys inside. You would to take say error.message, and JSON.parse() it.

For me the issue is I need to build an error handler to handle the 3 object formats i've encountered. Ideally I'm going to build it to handle RPC errors plus others. It kind of depends where the tx reverts too. Hope that helps someone.
