I actually stumbled over this while rebasing the VFS for Git patches, in
relation with the pre-command hook that we still support there (we're slowly
migrating toward Trace2, of course).

Once I figured out what the problem was, I hunted for a way to trigger this
bug in plain Git, and git help -a is the one I settled on. It had to be a
command that uses the early config machinery (and git help -a uses it to
list all aliases), and it had to be a command that does not discover a .git 
directory automatically (cmd_help is listed without any flags in git.c, so:
check).

Of course, part of me wants to just go and dig into the refs part of the
code to introduce an equivalent to the "early config" machinery (calling it
"early ref store"), but:

 1. We're really in feature freeze, and I want this bug fix to go into
    v2.23.0.
 2. It is actually a pretty obscure thing to want: a branch-dependent config
    that is used that early that the Git directory was not yet discovered. I 
    could imagine that some power user wants to play some games at some
    stage, say, with the pager depending on the name of the current branch,
    but even then, to run into the issue with this here patch where it
    simply ignores the includeif.onbranch: setting in the early config code
    path, a command has to be run that does not immediately set up 
    the_repository->gitdir but still wants to use the configured pager.

So yes, this patch introduces a known issue, but it does fix a BUG() where
no bug should be reported.
