Ok hg does the same, so I see the difference is in the git log --graph

This is the difference, hg log -G always show all the commit starting
with tip (basically the same as HEAD), the behavior you described would

  hg log -G --follow

No I think the point is not the checkout the point is the  hg log -G

I am now not so sure that really the strings branch/bookmark was checked
out I rather think not.

As this is what I was looking for. I actually don't like fast forward,
so I would use the --no-ff option.

That was very helpful, thanks
