Ok I figured out my confusion. The repository I am working with did
commits with "git commit --cleanup=verbatim" thus do not have a newline.
This is why I thought there was an inconsistency.

Agreed, but now I guess I would argue that it is inconsistent because
it lacks a "verbatim" option like git-commit has. I would like to see
an argument like this for commit-tree but a clean way to add this option
didn't immediately jump out at me.

I'm not seeing this, I see commit-tree as adding a new line even via
stdin (and the code seems to corroborate this), unless I missed something.
