The tenses are inconsistent here ("catches" versus "will also").

It also seems odd to call the sample hooks "default" hooks, but that's
a wider problem and should probably be fixed by one commit all at once
(maybe imitating the wording of the prepare-commit-message
description).  Previously enabling them was a matter of a "chmod +x"
and the wording made more sense.

How about:

        The default 'pre-commit' hook, when enabled, prevents introduction
        of lines with trailing whitespace and prevents introduction of
        files with non-ASCII filenames unless the hooks.allowNonAscii
        configuration variable is true.
