Is it composed of a noun and a sufficient morpheme?
I’m not sure what you mean by “sufficient”, but they’re both nouns.
Edit: Actually, I should probably mention that the -s- is a suffix, but it’s not relevant to the meaning.
"Sufficient" is my stupid phone's auto-correct for "suffixing".

Does it mean something like "mildness, softness, tenderness"?
Yes! Well, it's a little bit more narrow than that. Generally used more like "mercy, compassion, sympathy".
