is there a stylistic preference for a trailing "--" on a command?

- Subject: is there a stylistic preference for a trailing "--" on a command?
just noticed these examples in "man git-bisect":
$ git bisect start HEAD v1.2 -- # HEAD is bad, v1.2 is good
$ git bisect start HEAD origin -- # HEAD is bad, origin is good
$ git bisect start HEAD HEAD~10 -- # culprit is among the last 10
is there some rationale or stylistic significance to those trailing
"--" on those commands? i assume they have no effect, just curious as
to why they're there.
