!!  Jeremy Reed pointed out its presence in ssh_config, where it
doesn't matter.  I didn't look for it in sshd_config(5) because the
comments in sshd_config say that

# The strategy used for options in the default sshd_config shipped with
# OpenSSH is to specify options with their default value where
# possible, but leave them commented.  Uncommented options change a
# default value.

and it isn't there.

Thanks for the cluesticking.  Is it perhaps worth a PR that it's not
present in sshd_config?
