I think that's intentional - and it looks like the behaviour has not
changed since these options were added.  With the current behaviour you
get three possible outcomes from "git rev-parse --is-inside-work-tree":

    if worktree=$(git rev-parse --is-inside-work-tree 2>/dev/null)
        if test "$worktree" = true
            echo 'inside work tree'
            echo 'in repository, but not in work tree'
        echo 'not in repository'
