It's easy to miss.

For autofs type direct and offset mounts the flags are set at fill
super time.

They have to be set then because they are direct mounts and offset
mounts behave the same as direct mounts so they need to be set then
too. So, like direct mounts, offset mounts are each distinct autofs
(trigger) mounts.

I could check for this construct and refuse it if that's really
needed. I'm pretty sure this map construct isn't much used by
people using direct mounts.
