It seems the commit message is wrong, indeed. But it's too late to fix
it. OTOH, the documentation seems right to me
(Documentation/git-config.txt). It says:
System-wide configuration file.
Second user-specific configuration file. If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not set
or empty, `$HOME/.config/git/config` will be used. Any single-valued
variable set in this file will be overwritten by whatever is in
`~/.gitconfig`. It is a good idea not to create this file if
you sometimes use older versions of Git, as support for this
file was added fairly recently.
User-specific configuration file. Also called "global"
Repository specific configuration file.
