Seems like an oversight. Given that 'git worktree' is like a cross of
'git clone' and 'git checkout', both of which run that hook, it seems
reasonable that 'git-worktree' should do so, as well.

If you'd like to get your feet wet at contributing to the Git project,
this might be a good first dip, as it looks like an easy fix (a one-
or two-liner). The only thing which needs a bit of care is to skip the
hook when --no-checkout is specified. Other than that, 'githooks'
documentation would need an update to mention that git-worktree also
runs the hook, and t2025-worktree-add.sh would want a couple new tests
(which would probably be the most complex part of the patch).
