I guess the reason why is that jmp instructions can be optimized to use
8-bit signed offset if the destination is close enough, so the assembler
wants to go through them anyway to check, while such optimization is not
possible for the call and lea.

clang 9 emits no relocations for me, unless @PLT/@GOTPCREL is explicitly
used. Has that changed? (Just using clang -o test.o test.s on that
assembler, not too familiar with invokation syntax)
