What means "git config bla ~/"?

i'm sure i'm about to embarrass myself but, in "man git-config", OPTIONS, one reads:


git-config will expand leading ~ to the value of $HOME, and ~user to the home directory for the specified user. This option has no effect when setting the value (but you can use git config bla ~/ from the command line to let your shell do the expansion).

what's with that "git config bla ~/"? is this some config keyword or something?
