Then the formulation of this documentation snippet doesn't completely
suggest what you think. It just says STARTTLS requires the filename
unless ..., i.e. this option is *not required* on HASURANDOMDEV OSes.
*But* it does *not* say that the option is completely ignored on them,
just that it also works without the option.
At least I'd read this text snippet that way.
