The manpage is correct, your interpretation needs patched.  Yum has a
default of 0 unless it is overridden by the yum.conf file.  Fedora
provides a yum.conf file with a value that overrides the yum default.
In the same way the yum default is to not check gpg signatures, but
the Fedora provided yum.conf is set to check.
