Right, it is a NOP.  It is still there so you are able to use the same
gpg.conf for all versions of GnuPG.  I will fix the documentation.

I did it mainly to tell that 2.1 development is still alive and also to
remind me about 14 years of GnuPG.  More seriously this will be the last
beta which uses Pth - we need to switch over to nPth[1].  This new
library will need some time to build and work correctly on non-GNU/Linux
