I assume the docs you are referring to are (from "git help log"):
Print out the ref names of any commits that are shown. If short is
specified, the ref name prefixes refs/heads/, refs/tags/ and
refs/remotes/ will not be printed. If full is specified, the full
ref name (including prefix) will be printed. The default option is
The intent of that is to say that if we are in "short" mode, then for
any ref names we show, we will show them without their "refs/heads",
"refs/tags", or "refs/remotes" prefixes. Not that we will omit those
refs entirely (if you omitted those three, you would generally have
So no, it is not a bug, the code is working as intended. Patches welcome
