I rebooted, changing nothing else. Now I can't ssh in as oldmac.local, I have to use f20s.local. And now transient doesn't show up. So if I change things, I get some changes in behavior. If I restart processes, I get more changes in behavior. If I reboot, I get a complete reversal of behavior back to the way things were before any of the changes I made. This is a mess, honestly. I think the thing to do is set --static and leave everything else alone.
[root at f20s ~]# hostnamectl
