Which tar info page are your referring to? I can't find the
documentation you are referencing in the tar source package at all.

That being said I started a discussion about having to use
'--xattrs-include=*' when extracting a tar archive with upstream[1] and
discovered it was a deliberate decision to include all extended
attributes when creating the archive but to only extract the user.* ones
by default. Additionally, I've submitted patches upstream to have
https://www.gnu.org/software/tar/manual/tar.html#SEC70 updated to
reflect tar's behavior.
