So far, so good.

The truth is: Defaults to following color.ui, which used to default to
false but now defaults to auto.

My bad, I forgot to update these parts of the docs when changing the
default for color.ui (a while back already). Patch follows.

Unrelated from the question, but you could write

git -c color.branch=false git branch

to set a configuration value just for one command.
