`git merge --abort` does not run `git rerere clear`




`man git-rerere` says:

> clear
>
> Reset the metadata used by rerere if a merge resolution is to be
> aborted. Calling git am [--skip|--abort] or git rebase
> [--skip|--abort] will automatically invoke this command.

It makes sense that `git am [--skip|--abort]` and `git rebase
[--skip|--abort]` would run `git rerere clear`.

However, if they run it, then shouldn't `git merge --abort` run it, too?

If not, then what is the reason why not, and might it be helpful for
this reason to be mentioned at some appropriate place in the
documentation?

Thanks :)
