Earlier I checked on UFS.  Now I tried the above commands on ZFS,
but they work as expected:

  $ git status
  fatal: Not a git repository (or any parent up to mount point /src)
  Stopping at filesystem boundary (GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM not set).

Git checks out if it's in a git repository and if the current
working directory isn't one then it goes to the parent directories
recursively until it finds the root of a repo or a file system
boundary or / (root).

You can see where your invocation goes to with:

	$ strace git status 2>&1 >/dev/null | grep chdir
