When you're not comparing the working tree.

If we can reliably say "the RHS is the working tree" then it could be
unconditional, but I haven't thought about how to do that - I can't see
a particularly easy way to check for that; is it sufficient to say
"there is no more than one non-option to the left of '--' and '--cached'
is not among the options"?
