Changing it to Dark type can have some synergy with other Dark support cards. Genex Ally Powercell will make it's attack be at 2300, Caligo Claw Crow for some swarming potential, Dark Voltanis if you use counter trap cards, or Dark General Freed to negate targeted spell effects.
On their own, their attacks may be considered low, but they have versatile effects depending on the attributes of other monsters on the field. This also includes your opponent monster's attributes, so each of them can have both effects active. Having 2000 attack and negate monster's effects, or be able to attack multiple times, your Homonculus can help control which ones you need.
