What does "at the system level" in your "does *not* work at the
system level." exactly mean?

A configuration variable in the repository configuration take
precedence over user preference $HOME/.gitconfig which in turn take
precedence over system wide default /etc/gitconfig (or whereever you
or your distro decided to place it).  In other words, if you have
"[receive] denyNonFastForwards" in the system wide default, you can
say "[receive] denyNonFastForwards = false" in one particular
repository to allow it for that repository.
