Yeah, I dislike that as well.  If I want paged output, I'll page it; if
I want cut output, I'll cut it.  The "helpful" options added to the
$PAGER variable are really stupid as well; I have to set $SYSTEMD_PAGER
as well as $PAGER, just to override systemd's "help".

I didn't know that was there (not in the habit of running "rm -rf /"
just to see what happens).  I really can't think of a situation where
"rm -rf /" would be useful, so I don't really care one way or the other
about that one.
