Turns out the behavior preferred by you was introduced in v5.4 with
commit 394053f4a4b3 ("kbuild: make single targets work more correctly")
and undone with commit cc306abd19e8 ("kbuild: fix and refactor single
target build") in v6.1. As for what is the expected behavior, I can't say.
I for my part had not noticed that the behavior had changed between v5.4
and v6.0.

I would suggest to discuss details with Yamada-san.

Thanks,
Guenter
